Nida Ghouse

Nida Ghouse was assistant curator of the 10th Sharjah Biennial, and has worked as co-curator for the Jehangir Nicholson Art Foundation at the Prince of Wales Museum on an exhibition concept that is yet to be realised. She started a research-based group project about movement across the Mediterranean Sea, an element of which was presented at Manifesta 8 in Murcia. Nida has collaborated across two artist-run initiatives: with CAMP—on projects including The Neighbour Before the House (Jerusalem, 2009) and Wharfage (Sharjah, 2009); and with Pericentre Projects—which she co-founded to program the Kharita Symposium on Urban Trajectories (Cairo, 2009). Her most recent writing has appeared in publications such as Bidoun, The Exorcist - A Play Van Abbe Journal and ArtSlant, and she previously studied literature at the universities of Tufts and Oxford. Nida was born to Bombay and has lived with Cairo, and to both these cities she tends to return.
