Global Art & Visual Cultures Curatorial Studio

Punk Orientalism is a global art and visual cultures curatorial studio in New York, founded by award winning international curator and writer Sara Raza, formerly the Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator for the Middle East and North Africa.

With a focus on providing consultancy and strategy on global art, education, exhibitions, public programs and publishing the studio produces original content and explores ideas around non-conformity and resistance that are analogous to “Punk” movements, coupled with a fresh analysis into the symptoms of orientalism. We collaborate with independent artists, architects, designers and technologists to create innovative projects as well as working with global higher education, ministries of culture, museums and non-profit art centers.

This unique platform provides critical legitimacy through contemporary art, curatorial knowledge and education, by way of contributing to a wider understanding of international visual cultural dynamics, and serving as an important bridge between the US, Asia, the Middle East and Europe.

The site is currently undergoing construction please forward any inquiries to: subscribe to our newsletter launching this fall via the tab and visit to learn about our founder’s ongoing global curatorial practice.
