Solo exhibition of Western-Sydney artist Khaled Sabsabi
Khaled Sabsabi is a senior Australian artist who was born in Lebanon and migrated to Western Sydney with his family in the 1970s to escape civil war. Since 2001, repeated visits to the Middle East have inspired a body of work exploring the entwinement of spiritual belief, politics and conflict.
A promise presents major works by Khaled Sabsabi that ruminate on the complex relationship between self and other. It includes large-scale immersive time-based works from the Gallery’s collection – such as Organised confusion (2014), which explores heightened states of fanaticism and transcendence among Western Sydney Wanderers football fans – alongside new paintings that evoke the politics of person and place.
