b. 1974, UK; lives and works in London
A graduate of Central St Martins and the Royal College of Art, Dawood works across film, painting, and sculpture to analyse systems of image, language, location, and narrative. Using the editing process to explore meanings and forms between film and painting, his practice often involves collaboration, working with groups and individuals across different disciplines.
Solo exhibitions include Timothy Taylor, London (2016); Galerist, Istanbul (2016); Pioneer Works, Brooklyn (2015); Fig.2 at the ICA studio, London (2015); Parasol Unit, London, Leeds Art Gallery, and OCAT Xi’an (all 2014); and Modern Art Oxford (2012). His group exhibitions include Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2016); Taipei Biennial, Marrakech Biennial, and MACBA Barcelona (all 2014); and Tate Britain and 53rd International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia in 2009. Some of the collections housing Dawood’s work are the Tate Galleries; Government Art Collection, UK; The British Museum, London; LACMA, Los Angeles; and the National Gallery of Canada.
