Marwan Rechmaoui: Images, texts, and conversations

  • 208 Knox Hall, Columbia University (map)

Born in Beirut, Marwan Rechmaoui’s work focuses on urban dynamics, demographics and behaviors. He uses industrial materials such as concrete, rubber, tar and glass to create tactile works on a large scale, many of which focus on the histories of spatial violence in the Lebanese civil war. 

This event is brought to you by Studio @, a program curated by Rosalind C. Morris and sponsored by the Department of Anthropology and the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society. This event is also made possible by contributions from Alwan for the Arts and the Middle East Institute.
