Friday, Feb 03, 2012 8:00 PM EST
(7:30 PM Doors)
The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA
Rabih Mroué, a key figure in a new generation of artistic voices in Lebanon, illustrates his unique interdisciplinary practice, which exists at the crossroads of theater, performance, and visual arts. In Mroué’s latest work in progress, The Pixelated Revolution (co-commissioned by The Warhol), he presents a timely lecture/performance about the usage of mobile phones during the Syrian revolution.
Rabih Mroué is the recipient of the 2010 Spalding Gray Award from PS 122, The Andy Warhol Museum, On the Boards, and the Walker Art Center.
“[He is] to Beirut what the Wooster Group is to New York: a blend of avant-garde innovation, conceptual complexity and political urgency, all grounded in earthy humor.”
