Omar Berrada is a writer, translator, curator and the director of Dar al-Ma’mûn, a library and artists residency in Marrakech. He is currently living in New York, where Abraaj interviewed him about his journey as guest curator for the Abraaj Group Art Prize 2017. In his role as a jury member, Berrada selected the winning and shortlisted artists by committee. He then worked with each of the four artists to develop their concept, publication and final artwork for the exhibition. This unique process fosters new networks and leads to exciting collaborations stretching across the MENASA region.
