Raed Yassin (Lebanon) graduated from the Theatre Department of the Institute of Fine Arts in Beirut in 2003. He is a visual artist, curator, and musician (double bass, tapes, turntables and electronic music). As a starting point, Raed’s work often takes an examination of his own personal narratives, as well as those of the collective history that surround him, through the lens of consumer culture and mass production.

Raed has exhibited and performed his work across Europe, the Middle East, the United States, Japan. He was awarded the Fidus Prize for The Best of Sammy Clark at Beirut Art Centre’s Exposure (2009) exhibition and the Abraaj Capital Art Prize (2012).

Born in 1979 in Lebanon, Raed currently lives and works in Beirut.
