Mo Reda (AKA Mohamed Reda) was born in Kuwait to a multi cultural / racial family. Reda moved to the Netherlands in 1993 due to complexities of the Gulf war for non nationals in Kuwait.
He graduated in 2006 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art, specializing in Performance Art, Drawing and Installation. His graduation project won an award for Best Monumental Work the next year, after which he was commissioned by the Armando Museum. He was also selected to be part of the artistic team by Adelheid Roosen, the director of Female Economy and Zina Platform.
In Bahrain, Reda worked with Al Riwaq Art Space to produce the country’s first public art festival ALWAN 338. He also directed the Artist Leadership Program, a project involving 27 local artists to work towards several exhibitions that he curated.
Reda was part of a residency in Kiosko, Bolivia, where he worked with 10 local artists including Raquel Schwarz, Claudia Joskowicz, and Rodrigo Rada.
Reda is the producer Per/Form Project, the Gulf’s first performance art production program at Contemporary art platform in Kuwait, which introduced performance art as a professional production method, facilitating artists’ concept development, group dynamics, and providing mentorship and instruction throughout the program resulting in a group show.
Reda is currently working on 2 exhibitions to be part of Kochi biennale in India and the Santa Cruz Biennale in Bolivia to be presented in 2016.
