Sophie Arni

Founder, Abu Dhabi. Sophie Arni is a Swiss-Japanese curator and art critic. She was born in Geneva, Switzerland and grew up in Kenya and Chad, Africa. She spent the rest of her childhood throughout Eastern Europe before reaching the age of 18. The daughter of a Japanese artist, she is currently pursuing a B.A. in Art History from New York University Abu Dhabi.

She has been active in the international art world with internships at NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery (Abu Dhabi, 2014), American Friends of the Musée d’Orsay (New York City, 2015), Sotheby’s (London, 2015) and Christie's (New York City, 2016). In 2016, she curated East-East: UAE meet Japan at NYU Abu Dhabi's Project Space, a show which later traveled to CHI-KA Space on Alserkal Avenue, Dubai in which she mentored four Emirati artists to create works exploring the similarities between the Japanese and Emirati culture's heritage and futurism. She has been the creative director of GLOBAL ART DAILY™ since 2015.
