Shezad Dawood

Shezad Dawood (b. 1974, London) lives and works in London. Dawood is a visual artist who was trained at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design and the Royal College of Art before undertaking a PhD at Leeds Metropolitan University. Dawood works across various media, and much of his practice involves collaboration, frequently working with a specific network around a given project or site. These networks map across different geographic locations and communities, and are particularly concerned with acts of translation and restaging. Dawood’s work has been exhibited internationally, including as part of ‘Altermodern’ at Tate Britain, the 53rd Venice Biennale (both 2009), and the Busan Biennale (2010). Recent projects include a solo touring exhibition that opened at Modern Art Oxford in 2012, and an upcoming solo exhibition at Parasol Unit, London (2014). Dawood has been nominated for the Jarman Award 2012. In London he works as a Senior Lecturer and Research Fellow in Experimental Media at the University of Westminster.
