His works have been exhibited internationally in places such as ZKM, Karlsruhe, Germany; Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, Amman, Jordan; Museo Carrillo Gil, Mexico; Boston Center for the Arts, Boston (MA), USA; Ayala Museum, Manila, Philippines; the Whitechapel in London; the Royal Academy of Spain in Rome; in Biennials such as Singapore, Havana, the Biennial of the End of the World.
