Dina Korchid 1

Dina Khorchid is a visual artist working primarily with printed and woven textiles. She explores themes of identity politics, displacement, domesticity, land and memory access, to construct narratives of place and connections to lost bodies, in relation to her lived experience as a third-generation Palestinian refugee, a daughter of a disappeared casualty of the Gulf War and an artist.

Dina had her first exhibited artwork at Tashkeel in 2009. Her work was featured in group shows in the UAE, Lebanon and the USA. She completed a Master of Fine Arts in Textiles at the Rhode Island School of Design (2023), where she was a recipient of the Society of Presidential Fellows Award and a Bachelors in Visual Communication from the American University of Sharjah (2009). Dina was awarded Artist-in-Residence at the Vermont Studio Center (September 2023), Fellow at Ashkal Alwan’s Home Workspace Program (HWP, 2018-2019) and is an alumnus of the Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Emerging Artists Fellowship (SEAF, cohort of 2016-2017).
