Ghassan Ghazal is a visual artist, working across a variety of formats ranging from painting to sculpture to installation, performance and conceptual art. He was born in Beirut, in 1961, and was exiled from the country through the turbulent years of the Lebanese Civil War, leaving in 1979 for Canada and returning in 2006. Particularly preoccupied with the transformation of symbols of violence and coercion beyond representation, his multidisciplinary practice has taken the form of diverse research projects conflating image, space and perception. He has been showcased in different solo shows and group exhibitions, art fairs and auctions. His work was shown at the Museum of Quebec in Canada in 1995 and his most recent exhibition, “(IN)tolerance” was held at Galerie Janine Rubeiz in Beirut, 2012. Ghassan Ghazal holds a Master’s degree in Visual Arts from the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) and he currently lives in Beirut, where he works and teaches at the Lebanese American University.
