DorGuez

Dor Guez (born in Baka, Jerusalem) is an artist and a scholar who lives in Jaffa. His work interrogates personal and official accounts of the past while revealing histories that were previously absent. His practice raises questions about contemporary art's role in narrating unwritten histories, and re-contextualizing visual and written documents. The artist's cultural heritage, Christian Palestinian and Jewish Tunisian, is reflected in his artistic interest.

Guez's work has been the subject of over 25 solo exhibitions worldwide, with his most recent at the ICA in London, and Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit. Past solo exhibitions have been held at The Rose Art Museum in Boston, Artpace, San Antonio, the Mosaic Rooms, Centre for Contemporary Arab Culture, London, The KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin,Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and Petach Tikva Museum of Art. Guez's work has been included in numerous international exhibitions and biennials including the 12th Istanbul Biennial; 8th Berlin Biennial; 17th, 18th and 19th International Contemporary Art Festival, Videobrasil, São Paulo; 3rd Moscow International Biennale, Moscow; Biennale Benin, Cotonou; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography; MAXXI Museum, Rome; Cleveland Institute of Art; Triennale Museum, Milan; Villa Stuck Museum, Munich; Weatherspoon Art Museum, North Carolina, among others.

In 2014 Guez was nominated as head of the Photography Department at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem.
