Azim Al Ghussein

Azim Al Ghussein makes a wide variety of things as they reveal themselves to be necessary. Azim’s practice is based on sharing and gift giving as his resources allow; sometimes it’s a bar of soap, other times it is a book, a pickle, or a print. Azim is interested in hospitality, value and labour as they function and change within various cultural contexts. Azim finds value worth sharing in the histories of trade between cultures. His practice manifests in the kitchen or whatever space is available to him.

Azim joined Tashkeel as a member in 2015. He is an alumnus of the Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Emerging Artists Fellowship (SEAF), cohort of 2014-2015, in partnership with Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, USA. He is a graduate of the American University in Dubai, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts. Azim recently joined the team at Tashkeel as Education and Outreach Coordinator.
