ABOUT
STUDIOCUR/ART

Studiocur/art is a non-profit curatorial platform specialised in contemporary art and registered in Paris.
Created by Franco-Lebanese curator, Karina El Helou in 2015, the platform produces exhibitions to create unique interactions between the artist and the public. The platform is not defined by geographical or cultural adherence, its mission is to combine artists’ work with a school of critical thinkers, talented producers, architects and scenographers around the world. The platform has been developing the practice of bringing contemporary art to heritage buildings, moving away from the confines of today’s white cube.
The studio has also collaborated with institutions, museums, other non-profit platforms, curators, artists and residencies, in both the public and private domains.

Members: Karina El Helou ( Founder)
Elena Sorokina (Independent Curator)
