Rahiem Shadad

Rahiem Shadad, an up-coming curator from Sudan, invested in providing more local and international exposure to Sudanese artistic creation- whether modern or contemporary. He is the current curator for the Downtown Gallery and co-curator for the Regional French Institute in Sudan. Rahiem is passionate about shedding light on local art history through shows that portray works of forgotten generations, and believes that art reflects the absorbed state of the society. Thus, it is a way to understand the emotional changes the country went through. He is invested in the documentation and re-branding of works that preceded the post-revolution gallery movement and art boom, which attracted a wider spectrum of interest towards the local art. Rahiem has organized over 20 exhibitions (collective and solo shows) in the last 2 years.
