Majdulin Nasrallah holds a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Interdisciplinary Design Studies and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Interior Architecture from VCUarts Qatar. Her work spans a wide range of disciplines, including architecture, interior, furniture, and product design. She uses both art and design as tools to challenge current systems and constructs, provoke critical thought, and stimulate discussion within the community about political, social, and cultural realities. Majdulin’s interest n the intersection between design and the social/ behavioral sciences guides and shapes her projects. Her work often deals with the dialogue and interactivity between the human body and the built environment, tackling notions of physical space and objects in relation to the human experience through a variety of mediums and scales. Her projects have been showcased at the Manege Central Exhibition Hall, St. Petersburg, Russia (2018); the Anderson Gallery, Richmond, Virginia (2018), Kraftwerk, Berlin, Germany (2017) and at a number of venues across Doha, Qatar.
