The Chantal Crousel Gallery is pleased to announce the first solo gallery exhibition of Hassan Khan.
The work of Hassan Khan is nourished by the urban reality of Cairo, a city of 16 million inhabitants. Both lascivious and oversurveilled, this gigantic metropolis, drained by various ideological networks, manages the individual and the society in a constant friction of competing matrices. Television and religion, tablas and electric guitars, kitsch beauty and promiscuity, everything mixes and problematizes in an acceleration of contemporary data characterising the actual Middle East, and - by extension and translation - any mega city in the world.
