Roula Seikaly

Senior Editor, Humble Arts Foundation and Independent Curator and Writer

Roula Seikaly is an independent curator and writer based in Berkeley, and Senior Editor at Humble Arts Foundation. Her curatorial practice addresses contemporary photography and new media, social justice efforts in contemporary art, exhibition making, and institutional critique. Her writing is published virtually and in print on platforms including Hyperallergic, Photograph, BOMB Magazine, and KQED Arts. She has curated exhibitions at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, SOMArts, SF Camerawork, Blue Sky Gallery, and Colorado Photographic Arts Center.

She is interested in seeing projects by emerging and early career artists (high school, BFA and MFA candidates, artists working outside institutional contexts) that demonstrate strong conceptual and aesthetic foundations. Narrative, documentary, process- and research-based projects are all of interest, while commercial, stock, nude, still life, and traditional landscapes are not. As a representative of Humble Arts Foundation (HAF), she is looking for projects that we may highlight through artist interviews, exhibitions, and publication reviews.
