Raida Adon

Born to a Jewish father and a Muslim mother, Raida Adon's works emerge from her complex biography, addressing conflicted nations and the relationship between two interrelated societies. Adon’s practice deals with her split identity, which shifts between polyvalent spheres of influence, intertwined yet preserving imbalances of power. Adon is a graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. She has shown work and performed at museums and theatre festivals around the world. Adon has won two Minister of Education Awards from Israel – one as a Palestinian artist and the other as an Israeli artist.
