Abeer Seikaly is a Jordanian-Palestinian interdisciplinary architect, artist and cultural producer. Her practice is rooted in acts of memory – journaling, documenting, archiving, and collecting – and draws inspiration from traditional knowledge in the Arab homeland. She travels to Jordan’s Badia desert, where she engages in Bedouin women’s craftsmanship of textile weaving. Her recent works focus on indigenous Bedouin knowledge and practices, seeking to rediscover the intimacy of handcrafting. Seikaly is the co-founder of Amman Design Week (ADW) and the founder of ālmamar, a cultural experience and residency program in Amman, Jordan. She was appointed as the Louis I Kahn Visiting Assistant Professor at Yale School of Architecture and won the Lexus Design Award for her ongoing work, Weaving a Home. Her works have been exhibited at many institutions: Science Museum, London (2022); Darat Al Funun, Amman (2022); The Miyake Issey Foundation, Tokyo (2021); Espacio Fundación Telefónica, Madrid (2020); MAK – Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna (2018); Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2017); and Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York (2016). Her works are also housed in private and public collections: Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan, Amman, and Barjeel Art Foundation, Sharjah.
