Sara Raza Named Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator

Sara Raza has been chosen for the third curatorial residency of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative, representing the Middle East and North Africa. Raza is a London-based curator, critic, and editor. She will join MAP curators June Yap (South and Southeast Asia) and Pablo León de la Barra (Latin America) in realizing a program that supports contemporary art, artists, education, and professional exchange in these regions.

Said director Richard Armstrong: “With her formidable scholarship, critical eye, and broad range of curatorial and programming experience, Raza will help us further our goal to realize the potential of art to expand people’s horizons everywhere. Her work will complement and extend the research that the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi curatorial team is undertaking and will greatly enhance the Guggenheim’s engagement with art and artists from the Middle East and North Africa.”
