Yasmine Helou is an Italian-Lebanese curator with a background shaped by her upbringing in both Beirut and Rome. This multicultural and multilingual foundation has profoundly influenced her personal and professional pursuits.
Her journey in the art world began with studies in Paris, where she gained hands-on experience in various capacities, including roles in art galleries and museums such as The Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris and the National Museum of Beirut.
Seeking to deepen her understanding of contemporary art, Yasmine Helou pursued a Master's course in Curatorial Practice in Venice, Italy. Motivated by a commitment to promote and contribute to the contemporary art scene, Yasmine co-founded a.topos, a curatorial collective based in Venice in 2018 (which she is not part of anymore). Since then, she has actively participated in cultural projects and exhibitions, including noteworthy contributions such as the National Pavilion of Malta at the 2019 Venice Art Biennale and engaging in the DK Zattere Curatorial Lab of the V-A-C Foundation.
In 2021, Yasmine assumed a pivotal role as the head of the exhibitions and events program for Venice Art Projects, further showcasing her dedication to the cultural landscape.
While still organizing a number of projects in Venice, she keeps being involved in different projects around the World; Mexico City, Athens, Beirut, Paris, etc.
