Curator, Quantum Art and Senior Editor, Humble Arts Foundation
Roula Seikaly is an Oakland-based independent curator, writer, 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, Colorado Photographic Arts Center, and Photographic Center Northwest. In November 2021, Roula joined the staff of Quantum Art as Curator. Through expertly executed drops, Quantum makes NFT photography easily accessible for both artists and collectors.
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 Quantum Art, She is looking for projects that are or could be ready for NFT launches in 2023 and beyond. As a representative of Humble Arts Foundation (HAF), She is looking for projects that we may highlight through artist interviews, exhibitions, and publication reviews.
