Dalia Baassiri has been selected for a residency program for emerging Middle-Eastern artists offered in partnership with the Siena Art Institute and the Kempinski Young Artist Programme, in which the resident artist will spend time working on their artistic projects in both Siena and Berlin.
Dalia Baassiri was born in 1981 in Lebanon where she is based at present. In 2003, she graduated from the Lebanese American University with a bachelor's degree in graphic design and went on to pursue a master's degree in fine art at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London, where she also took part in various group shows.
