Karim Noureldin

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Karim Noureldin is a Swiss artist living and working in Lausanne. Karim’s work is grounded in geometrical abstraction, a practice he initiated in 1994 during a period living in New York. Whilst originating in drawing, his abstract vocabulary has expanded to sculptures, wall and floor paintings, as well as larger site-specific installations.

Karim has exhibited nationally and internationally, with recent solo shows including: Equinox, von Bartha, Basel (2019); Tekati, Ribot arte contemporanea, Milan (2018); Oreo, Bernhard Knaus Fine Arts, Frankfurt (2016); Walk, von Bartha, S-chanf (2016); Dhurrie, Kunstverein adhoc, Bochum (2016). Karim was the recipient of Pro Helvetia – The Swiss Arts Council’s artist in residence programme at Studio Mumbai for 2021. Since 2018, Karim has been a member of the Board of Directors of The Hermann and Margrit Rupf Foundation/Rupf Collection, Bern, a role which he added to in 2019 when he became a member of the Board of the Theodor Bally Estate Foundation, Aarau.
