Under/Over: Dahlia Elsayed
Messier Gallery, 3rd floor
A mural installation by artist Dahlia Elsayed, who writes, “For over a decade, I have been making text and image based work that synthesizes an internal and external experience of place, connecting the ephemeral to the concrete. Visually, the work pulls from conceptual art, comics, cartography and landscape painting.”
Elsayed’s paintings and installations have been exhibited in group and solo shows in the United States, Poland, the Netherlands, South Korea, Sweden, Italy, Armenia, and Egypt. Her work can be found in the collections of The Newark Museum, the US Department of State—Art in Embassies, Johnson & Johnson Corporation, The Jersey City Museum, Hunterdon Museum of Art, Noyes Museum of Art, Ritz Carlton Hotel NYC, and many more. Elsayed is currently an assistant professor of fine arts at CUNY LaGuardia Community College.
