About the Artist
Sarah Alagroobi is a multidisciplinary artist, curator and educator with an MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art, London. She explores notions of culture and identity of both Arab and Western contexts through post-colonial discourse. Her practice mines personal and collective experiences that portray an agile simplicity in expression of place, borders and a sense of belonging. She is the founder of The Letters Project, an online platform that aims to foreground anonymous letters that speak to the anthropological and socio-cultural climate of the Arab region. She has co-curated and collaborated with grassroots initiatives such as Banat Collective and Samt. Her work has gathered the attention in leading design magazines ESTRO, ID and Close-Up and have been exhibited regionally and internationally at Somerset House, London, Salone del Mobile, Milan, Versus Art Project, Istanbul, Venice Biennale, Dutch Design Week, ME Collectors Room, Berlin and Warehouse421, Art Jameel, Art Dubai and Abu Dhabi Art.
