ABOUT

I am a Curator, an Art Historian, and the co-founder of Mathqaf, based between Doha and Paris. From 2016 until 2020, I worked at Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha as an Assistant Curator. Presently, I am a full-time PhD student at Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. My doctoral research focuses on the history of performance art and its contemporary practices in the Arab world, since the 1980s.
