About Khaled Sabsabi

Khaled Sabsabi migrated with his family to Australia in 1978 following the outbreak of civil war in Lebanon. They settled in Western Sydney, where Sabsabi now lives and works. Since the late 1980s Sabsabi has worked with communities, particularly those in Western Sydney, to create and develop arts programs and projects that explore the complexities of place, displacement, identity, and ideological differences associated with migrant experiences and marginalisation.

Sabsabi began his creative life as a hip-hop performer but more recently has produced sound art, immersive installations, and theatre pieces. As a video artist, he continues to work across borders of discipline, nationality, and culture to create artworks that challenge the passive consumption of media spectacle.

Sabsabi is represented by Milani Gallery, Brisbane and has works in private, national, and international collections. He has participated and presented in over 80 solo and group exhibitions in Australia and abroad including Biennales in Marrakech, Shanghai, Sharjah, Yinchuen, Kochi Muziris, Adelaide and Sydney. Most recently, he presented A Promise at the Art Gallery of NSW (2021) and A Hope at Campbelltown Arts Centre (2022).
