Bio

Suhad Khatib (b. 1979) is a multimedia artist who was born in Oman, raised in Jordan and been living in the US for the past 14 years. Her work has been published and included in exhibitions in Montreal, Connecticut, San Francisco and Amman. She describes her work as “an intentional study on healing and identity.” In 2014 she spoke on behalf of the Palestine Contingent at the Ferguson October 1st mobilization, in 2019 she spoke at Harvard Divinity School alongside Patricia Hall Colins on the role of art in decolonizing Feminism, and most recently she spoke at the Palestine Lives Conference in New York on the importance of art and liberation theology in building movements.

Khatib’s practice extends to design and filmmaking. Notably, she is the designer behind prominent social justice campaigns that have shaped our understanding of recent history like: #Ferguson2Palestine, #ISupportRasmea and #ShowMe15 Campaigns. In film, she was one of the founders of the film industry in Jordan, wrote and directed multiple short films, finished residency programs by Sundance Film Institute, Dubai Film Connection, and Euromed Audiovisual Program. In 2010 she co-wrote the most watched Jordanian comedy series! 

Suhad holds a BA in Graphic design from Applied Science University.
