Event description

The Fine Arts Lecture Series is a cornerstone of CCA's vibrant campus culture, providing an exceptional platform for students to engage with eminent artists from around the world. This dynamic immersive series offers an unparalleled opportunity for students to witness the creative process, gain insights into diverse artistic perspectives, and interact with established professionals.

Through these inspiring interactions, students are not only exposed to cutting-edge techniques and innovative concepts but also encouraged to think critically, question norms, and broaden their artistic horizons. The series fosters an environment of intellectual curiosity, cultural enrichment, and creative growth, empowering students to evolve as both skilled artists and well-rounded individuals poised for success in the competitive world of contemporary art.


Drawing from experience and self-directed research, Rayyane Tabet explores stories that offer an alternative understanding of major socio-political events through individual narratives. Informed by a training in architecture and sculpture, Tabet's work investigates paradoxes in the built environment and its history by way of installations, interventions and performances that reconstitute the perception of physical and temporal distance.

Most recent and upcoming solo shows include the MUDAM Museum in Luxembourg, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Sharjah Art Foundation in Sharjah, Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Parasol Unit Foundation for Contemporary Art in London, Carré d'Art Museum in Nîmes and Kunstverein in Hamburg.

Tabet's work was featured in the 80th Whitney Biennial, the 7th Yokohama Triennial, the 2nd Lahore Biennial, the 21st Biennale of Sydney, Manifesta 12, the 15th Istanbul Biennial, the 32nd São Paulo Biennial, the 6th Marrakech Biennale, the 10th and 12th Sharjah Biennials, the 2nd New Museum Triennial and was part of collateral events during the 55th and the 59th Venice Biennial.
