Dana Kaoukji is a multidisciplinary artist/curator, currently based in Tunis. She was Specialist, Modern and Contemporary Art at AlBahie Auction House, Doha, Qatar, where she co-organized more than 7 auctions in different categories with a deep focus and speciality on Modern & Contemporary Art. Before that she was the Artistic Director at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts (JNGFA) where she curated local and international exhibitions, festivals and events by liaising with artists, curators, Embassies, museums and art and cultural institutions. In 2021 she was Modern and Contemporary Art Specialist at AlBahie Auction House, Qatar
As a curator, she aims at deconstructing the traditional approach to building exhibitions and art events and tries to open up a platform for the emerging, underground and outsider art scenes and building links between them, the art and cultural institutions and the local community.
Her artistic practice is centered on searching in and questioning the dominant norms by re-appropriating their own hierarchical assumptions using painting, music, performance, and installations.
