Dor Guez

Lives and works in Jaffa.

Dor Guez’s photography, video, mixed media, performances, and essays explore the relationship between art, narrative, and memory. Interrogating personal and official accounts of the past, Guez raises questions about contemporary art’s role in narrating unwritten histories and re-contextualizing visual and written documents. Since 2006, his ongoing research focuses on archival materials of the region.

He has had solo exhibitions at venues such as ICA, London; Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit; The Rose Art Museum, Boston; Artpace, San Antonio; The Mosaic Rooms: Centre for Contemporary Arab Culture, London; KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; and Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Guez’s work has been included in numerous international exhibitions and biennials including the 12th Istanbul Biennial, Istanbul; 17th, 18th and 19th International Contemporary Art Festival, Videobrasil, São Paulo; 3rd Moscow International Biennale, Moscow; Biennale Bénin, Cotonou; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography; and MAXXI Museum, Rome. In 2009, Guez established the Christian Palestinian Archive and Co-director of SeaPort: Mediterranean Curatorial Residency
