Khalid Albaih's cartoons range from pointed political commentary to broader comments on free speech, contemporary society and technology.

The artwork of Doha-based cartoonist @khalidalbaih first became well-known during the Arab Spring when one of his images of Hosni Mubarak went viral. Today, he publishes his cartoons under Creative Commons licensing on social media at "Khartoon!" This exhibition focuses on the ways in which technology is activated to provide a platform for activism in Albaih’s work. 

A conversation between @khalidalbaih with Jonathan Guyer, contributing editor at the Cairo Review of Global Affairs, will be held at VCUQatar Gallery on Tuesday, March 15 at 6pm. This event is free and open to public.

The exhibition is curated by Holiday Powers, VCUQatar Assistant Professor.
