Huda Lutfi
Lives & Works in Cairo, Egypt
Huda Lutfi is a cultural historian and self-taught artist. An Associate Professor at the American University, Cairo, Lutfi holds a PhD in Islamic Culture and History. Her artistic practice is closely aligned with her research through which she reflects upon history and traditions as they exist in the contemporary world. In considering the present-day interpretations and misinterpretations of the past, Lutfi investigates the human psyche as it relates to remembrance. In conversation with a larger political context, Lutfi’s works incorporate elements of popular culture, political insignia, and plays on slogans and language, using the human figure as a recurrent motif. Her use of pop icons is confrontational and direct while also abstracted to create statements on socio-political conditions. Lutfi’s work is in collections of the Barjeel Art Foundation, Sharjah, UAE; Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, Amman, Jordan; Museum of Modern Art, The Hague, Netherlands; The World Bank, Cairo, Egypt; The British Museum, London, UK; Indianapolis Museum, Indianapolis, USA; and Jean-Jacques de Fleurs, Paris, France. Huda Lutfi will be presented by Richard Saltoun Gallery.
