He returned to the Gulf in 2011 to collaborate with the Al-Riwaq Art Space (Bahrain) to curate and produce an open air public festival.

Critiques at Tashkeel happen in various ways—one-on-one with curator, in small groups with fellow artists, full-workshop discussions, and informally whenever you wish to get feedback from instructors and peers. These opportunities make your work stronger and energize you by introducing ideas and possibilities that you may not have considered. These dialogues are crucial to your development as an artist and a thinker. Critiques provide excellent preparation for life where your ability to explain your ideas, process feedback, and work collaboratively are necessary and valued skills across all professions.

Tashkeel has invited Mohamed Reda for a one-on-one sit down with 4 artists who wish to have a critique session at whatever stage they are with their work. Being able to present your ideas and refine them with a curator's input provides an environment in which real learning occurs.

This opportunity is offered on a first come first serve basis. The sessions will take place at Tashkeel.
