Art Writing & Design

Sahar Khraibani is a multi-disciplinary artist, designer, and writer from Beirut who is currently based in New York City. Her work has been shown in New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, Cairo, Abu Dhabi, and Beirut and deals with the intricacies of language, the mother tongue and its translation, colonial histories and the tensions between everyday life and the condensed geopolitics of the Middle East. Her formative years in Lebanon living along the Mediterranean Sea have resulted in an on-going artistic focus on how the land and sea function as physical and emotional repositories for histories that have been written over by borders and the international prioritization of resources over people. She is a frequent contributor to Degree Critical and has published an illustrated anthology titled “Loving And Leaving Beirut,” during an artist residency at Beit Waraq in 2017. Her writing has also been published on Hyperallergic’s online journal. In 2014, she was nominated for the AREEN Project Award of Excellence in Graphic Design. She is fluent in Arabic, French, and English. She received her BFA in Graphic Design with honors from the American University of Beirut in May 2014 and is currently an MFA candidate at the Art Writing Program at the School of Visual Arts in New York (May 2019).
