About Gaby Sahhar

Gaby Sahhar is a French-Palestinian artist based in London, working across painting, film and installation. Their work deconstructs the representation of queerness within public spheres to understand its wider impacts on queer consciousness and communities. Drawing on language and vulnerability as tools, their work aims to generate conversations around value systems, affordability and access within inner city cultures. They employ speculative storytelling to outline the different ways in which cities serve the interests of patriarchal capitalist identities to the detriment of others.

Solo exhibitions include MAC VAL, Paris / The Kooples Art Prize (2023); PAGE (NYC), New York (2022); and group exhibitions include Fragment Gallery, New York (2022); Sadie Coles HQ, London (2022).

Gaby is also an alum of Duchamp & Sons.
