Dina Danish (b.1981), seniman asal Kairo, Mesir, saat ini sedang menjalani program residensi di Yogyakarta untuk mempersiapkan karyanya di Biennale Jogja XII. Dua karya yang akan diprsentasikan Dina dalam pameran BJXII nanti adalah sebuah karya video berjudul “Sailor Shirt” dan satu karya hasil eksplorasinya atas teknik batik yang ia temui pada kunjungannya ke Yogyakarta kali ini.

Persinggungan Dina Danish dengan skena seni kontemporer di luar Mesir membuatnya berani bereksperimen dengan praktik artistik alternatif. Ia bereksperimen dengan video, performance, fotografi dan instalasi. Karyanya memadukan seni konseptual dengan bahasa dan struktur yang bermain dalam nuansa humor, kesalahpahaman, kesalahan dalam penerjemahan, dan takhayul. Gelar sarjana seni Dina diperoleh dari The American University Kairo, kemudian gelar Master untuk Seni Lukis dan Drawing di California College of the Arts, San Francisco.

Dina Danish mendapatkan Curator’s Choice Celeste Prize Roma pada tahun 2012, memenangkan Illy Present Future Award Artissima 18 pada tahun 2011, dan Barclay Simpson Award San Francisco di tahun 2008. Pameran tunggal terakhirnya, “Re-Play: Back in 10 Minutes”, berlangsung di SpazioA, Pistoia,Italia tahun 2012. Jika tidak sedang sibuk berkarya, Dina Danish mengajar di Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam.
