Lina Lazaar


Specialised in contemporary art, Lina Lazaar holds an MA in Art History from Sotheby’s Institute of Art. Throughout her career at Sotheby’s she supported the emergence of contemporary Arab art on the international scene after which she worked as a curator and joined KLF as its President. 

She has significantly shaped the focus of the KLF collection and initiated the now annual Jaou event, the first edition of which took place in 2013. Following her curation of the first pan-Arab exhibition The Future of a Promise at the 54th Biennale de Venezia in 2011, she made possible the return of Tunisia to the event in 2017 after an almost 6 decades pause with the exhibition Absence of Paths.
