Alex El Dahdah (b. Byblos, Lebanon) is a video artist whose work often centers on themes related to his upbringing in a traditional Lebanese Maronite family. His artistic journey has taken him to various places around the world, including Byblos, Beirut, Dubai, San Francisco, and Baltimore. His contemplation of collective and individual identities mainly centers on the collision of identities that are not often explored together.
One of his recent works, Āh (2020), presents a poignant portrayal of a homosexual love story set in early post-feudal Lebanon. Currently based in Baltimore, MD, Alex is pursuing his second year at the Multidisciplinary MFA program at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).
Alex's artistic portfolio encompasses a range of media, including film/video, digital photography, and performing arts. His introspective work explores themes of ancestry, linguistic metaphors, and expressions of faith and identity. Additionally, he has directed and participated in several award-winning short films, showcasing his artistic versatility and unique perspective.
