Huda Lutfi (b. Cairo, 1947) is a cultural, gender historian by professional training whose work in the field of the visual arts translates these affiliations in multiple complex ways. In 1983, she received her PhD in Arab Muslim Cultural History from McGill University, Montreal, Canada. A self-trained artist, Lutfi, began her practice during the mid-1990s, amid the rise of an independent art scene and the establishment of a number of influential art institutions. In 2012, a self-titled monograph on Huda Lutfi was published by The Third Line. Her work is part of major collections including: Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Los Angeles, USA; Barjeel Art Foundation, Sharjah, UAE; Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, Amman, Jordan; Circustheater Foundation, Hague, Netherlands; The American University in Cairo; Egypt and The British Museum, London, UK. The World Bank, Egypt. Muscarelle Museum of Art, Virginia, USA; Indianapolis Museum, Indianapolis, USA. Margueitte Hoffman Art Collection, Texas, USA.
