Jane Lombard Gallery is pleased to announce Christine Gedeon in conversation with Khaled Malas moderated by Hrag Vartanian. 

Christine Gedeon
Gedeon is a Syrian-American artist, her work focuses on the Syrian Civil War, lived experiences and her family’s history. Her solo exhibition Syria…as my mother speaks is on view through December 15, 2018. Gedeon was born in Aleppo, Syria, raised in the US, and lives and works in both Berlin and New York. She shows internationally and has received commissions to create site-specific installations. Her awards include a grant from The Harpo Foundation, 2016, The Bronx Museum (AIM 30) program, 2011, and an Emerging Artist Fellowship from A.I.R. Gallery, NY in 2005-6.  She was also selected as the artist to represent the 2000s with a solo show at A.I.R. Gallery’s 45th anniversary show in 2017. Her work has appeared in Hyperallergic, Art in America, The Dallas Morning News, and in the book You Are Here: NYC: Mapping the Soul of the City, by Katharine Harmon.

Khaled Malas
Khaled Malas is an architect from Damascus and a co-founder of the Sigil Collective. He is also a PhD candidate at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. During the Summer of 2017, Khaled led the Second Janet Abu-Lughod Seminar at Studio-X Amman on Qusayr Amra, an early Islamic bathhouse renowned for its unique painting cycle.

Sigil is an Arab collective based in Beirut and New York City. It seeks to explore the simultaneously marvelous and terrifying metamorphoses of the Arab landscape that is the stake and site of historical and contemporary struggles. Since 2014 they have been engaged in building rural architectures of resistance in Syria including water-wells and electricity-generating windmills.

He remains condemned to hope.
