Hadeel Eltayeb

Hadeel Eltayeb is a curator who explores identity and cultural production in her work. She is currently an Assistant Curator at the Design Museum in London. Her research has explored facing down the haunting effects of ghosts in the archive, negotiating narratives of ownership through oral histories, and negotiating the tension between individual, social and public remembering through cultural practices.  Past curatorial roles have given her the opportunity to specialize in oral history projects, sound art, modern and contemporary art from South West Asia and North Africa, particularly public art and street art, working on international projects . Following her graduation from King’s College, University of London, with a BA( Hons) in English Literature and Language, she worked on an exhibition project with the Victoria and Albert Museum (Staying Power: Photographs of Black British Experience 1950s–1990s) as well on projects with the Ben Uri Gallery and Museum, and an oral history museum in East London. She also holds an MA in Socially Engaged Practice in Museums and Galleries and a diploma in cultural heritage (NVQ, UK).
