Rosalind Nashashibi is a London-based filmmaker and painter. Her films describe the qualities of experience, things and locations. Some questions asked: how do we work? How do we take care of one another? How can we navigate our own institutions? Recent locations include two artists living in exile in Guatemala and a deliveryman in Antwerp.
Nashashibi’s paintings find abstract forms for qualities between and around us, in language substitutions.
Solo shows include a war artist commission at Imperial War Museum, UCI California, Objectif , Antwerp, ICA, London and Chisenhale. She has shown in Manifesta 7, the Nordic Triennial and Sharjah 10. She represented Scotland in the 52nd Venice Biennale. She is a recipient of the Paul Hamlyn Award for artists, and in 2003 was the first woman to win Becks Futures.
In 2017 she participated in documenta14 in Athens and Kassel and was nominated for the Turner Prize.
Alongside her solo practice she is one half of the collaboration Nashashibi/Skaer with artist Lucy Skaer.
Rosalind was a mentor to Tanoa Sasraku (2019).
