Mophradat creates opportunities for artists from the Arab world through an inventive approach to funding, commissioning, collaborating, and gathering. Its way of working is imaginative and ambitious, inclusive and hospitable. Mophradat encourages and supports artists by bringing them together with one another and with curators and institutions which share progressive socio-political values. Between 2015 and 2019, it enabled the presentation of artworks and projects by more than 300 artists, connected with 2,000 young Arab artists around the world, and curated 15 exhibitions and events at partner organizations in Europe and the US.
We acknowledge our culture’s systemic marginalization of artists because of race, gender, religion, age, ability, sexual orientation, and/or immigration status among other factors. We actively seek to highlight the work of under-represented practitioners and support efforts to address entrenched inequities.
