Habda Rashid

Habda Rashid is Senior Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art at the Fitzwilliam Museum, University of Cambridge, where she is working on major exhibitions and developing the collection. Her collecting focus, which is set in a research framework, examines how post-colonial complexities of genealogies and geographies challenge and broaden existing histories of art. Previously her role also covered Kettle’s Yard, where Habda managed the House and collection. Prior to joining the Cambridge museums Habda was Senior Curator and then joint Artistic Director at Create London, where she was part of the commissioning team for Veronica Ryan’s Turner Prize winning Hackney Windrush Art Commission, the first public work to win the prestigious award.

Habda has also worked in the curatorial department at the Whitechapel Gallery, working on a wide variety of exhibitions, archive displays and commissions by national and international artists including Chris Marker, Theaster Gates and Mike Nelson . She has edited a number of catalogues and has had writing published on many artists including Leonore Antunes Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Michael Rakowitz and Deborah Roberts. In March 2024, Habda will open an exhibition she has curated for Lismore Castle, Ireland, presenting sculptural works by artists Leonor Antunes, Alexandre da Cuhna, Rhea Dillon and Veronica Ryan.
