As a storyteller, Modallal aims to offer a welcoming and innovative space for all members of the community and create thought-provoking audiovisual exhibitions.


As a storyteller, my passion lies in bringing together diverse voices and perspectives to create engaging and thought-provoking audiovisual exhibitions. At the heart of my work is a commitment to promoting innovation, diversity, and a high quality curatorial program.

My approach to curating is collaborative and process-driven. I believe that art has the power to provoke critical thinking, challenge assumptions, and inspire action.

Through my exhibitions, I aim to create a space where visitors can engage with new ideas, and experience the transformative power of art. I believe that art can serve as a catalyst for social change, and I seek to provide a platform for innovative and hardworking multidisciplinary artists whose audiovisual work inspire us with outside-of-the-box ideas and introduce us to new artistic techniques and mediums.
