Nour Ballout (b. 1993, Beirut) is a Detroit & Chicago based interdisciplinary artist and curator. They received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Wayne State University and an MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). Nour Ballout’s practice grapples with the ways looking can manifest as both resistance and violence while negotiating the tensions among visibility, documentation and surveillance. Through photography, archive and space making, their work interrogates the ways the naturalization of structures of power manifest within bodies, built environments, and communities.

Nour currently serves on the Detroit Institute of Arts contemporary arts advisory group. They are the recipient of many awards, fellowships and grants that include the 2023 Modern Ancient Brown Fellowship, the ICI EXPO Curatorial Research Fellowship, the 2022 Michigan Arts and Cultural Council Grant, the 2021 Transforming Power Fund Grant, the 2019 Knight Arts Challenge Award, Kresge Arts in Detroit Gilda Award and many more. Nour has exhibited their work nationally and participated in several artist residencies including the Ghana Think Tank in Detroit, Flux Factory in New York and plans to participate in the Kala Arts Institute Residency in 2023.
