With Iman Issa, Renée Green

For the closing of the exhibition “Iman Issa. Book of Facts” artists Renée Green and Iman Issa will reflect on the common interests, recurring themes, connecting questions, and points of confluence shared by their own artistic practices. Issa’s exhibition in the daadgalerie provides the starting point for an open discussion on various facets of their own practices and continues in a public form the existing dialogue between the two former fellows of the Artists-in-Berlin Program of the DAAD.

Her work has been presented in various international solo and group exhibitions, including the Whitechapel Art Gallery London (2017), the Kunsthalle Lisbon (2016), and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York (2016). Iman Issa was nominated for the Preis der Nationalgalerie in 2017 and is the winner of the Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise 2017.
