YBCA - Bay Area Now

 

 In Fall 2019, Khoury's work was featured in Yerba Buena Center for the Arts triennial Bay Area Now exhibition.

        "Khoury’s Untitled (15 Esthers in pyramid on bone relief plinth), 2018, placed at the center of a small fountain visible through a glass wall, is a stuttering, dreamlike vision of a fluffy little creature — a wall label tells us Esther is the artist’s dog — heroicized, an avatar of pride and empowerment. It is the standout object in the show, both for its haunting aspect and its brilliant placement."   -Charles Desmarias, art critic (retired) for the San Francisco Chronicle
