She has participated in numerous international group exhibitions over the last decade. From 2009 this included the Venice Biennale, the Istanbul Biennial, the Bahrain National Museum, Manama, L’Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris, The Jerusalem Show, and Sentences on the Banks and Other Activities exhibition at Darat al Funun, Amman.
