Latifa Al Khalifa is a curator and arts manager who began her career as a diplomat at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Bahrain. She found her passion for Arab contemporary art as she was studying for her MA in Cultural and Creative Industries at King’s College London.
In 2013, in partnership with Edge of Arabia and the Ministry of Culture in Bahrain, Al Khalifa curated In the Open, a group exhibition at the Mayor of London Shubbak Festival. The exhibition marked the first time a Bahraini contemporary art group had participated in an art event in London.
In 2016, she launched Too Far Company, an art platform that focuses on promoting artists and artworks from the MENA region in the global art market as well as offering skills-based art education programmes in Bahrain.
