The Board of Trustees of Tate is delighted to announce that Rosalind Nashashibi has been appointed as an Artist Trustee of Tate. The appointment, which has been made by the Prime Minister, begins on 15 April 2022 for a period of four years.

Rosalind Nashashibi is a London-based filmmaker and painter of Palestinian and Northern Irish heritage. Her films use both documentary and speculative languages, where observations from her own life and the world around her are merged with paintings, fictional or sci-fi elements, often to propose models of collective living. Her paintings similarly frame spaces of potential, where people or animals may appear, often sharing the picture plane with signs and apparitions that hint at their position vis a vis the artist.

Nashashibi has exhibited in Documenta 14, Manifesta 7, the Nordic Triennial, and Sharjah X. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2017 and won Beck’s Futures prize in 2003. She represented Scotland in the 52nd Venice Biennial. Her most recent solo shows include Vienna Secession, CAAC Seville, Chicago Art Institute and Kunstinstuut Melly, Rotterdam. She was the National Gallery’s artist in residence in 2020.
