About

Photo by Mazin Alzain

Trained as an architect, Reem Aljeally is a visual artist and curator whose work explores the personality and life of a young woman. She draws her inspiration from personal reflection, observations, and curiosity. Her curatorial practice has been intrigued by questions of forming one’s identity in its social context, spaces we inhabit, and what forms the Sudanese contemporary scene. She founded The Muse multi studios in 2019, an integrative regional artistic organization with a contemporary art gallery in Khartoum.
