Photographer Tarek Al-Ghoussein on k-Files
Born in Kuwait and educated in New York and New Mexico, Tarek Al-Ghoussein returned to his native land to document its history and discovered a landscape transformed by development. The prominent photographer is best known for his works that combine elements of landscape and portrait photography.
This exhibition features twelve photographic prints from the artist’s K-Files series, as well as a sampling of new works from his Al Sawaber series, both focused on his experience in his native Kuwait. Join Al-Ghoussein, whose work has been featured in the Venice Biennale, as he discusses his work, in conversation with Curator of Contemporary Art JoAnne Northrup.
Support for the Art Bite series comes from Nevada Arts Council and Nevada Humanities.
