About Yomna Osman

Yomna Osman (Egypt, 1990) is an independent curator, writer, and researcher based between Paris and Cairo. Yomna believes that transnational artistic dialogue is vital to decoloniality and decolonial sensemaking. Through a multidisciplinary discourse built mostly on non-western fiction, philosophy, and urban networks, her practice lives in the crevices between appearance and disappearance.

Yomna holds a dual BA from the American University in Cairo in International and Public Law and History; and a dual MA from the California College of Arts in Curatorial Practice and Visual Criticism.

Yomna has curated exhibitions, performances, and screenings at various institutions including Círculo de Bellas Artes, Madrid; The Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco; Fondation Fiminco, Paris, among others. She has held various curatorial positions at KADIST, San Francisco; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; ArteEast, New York, among others.
