Maryam Hoseini

Maryam Hoseini (b. 1988, Tehran, Iran) explores the subtle relationship between bodies, physical space, and the politics of narrative. Her work utilizes painting and site-specific installation to investigate the political, social, and personal conditions of identity and gender while examining the concept of ruins, displacement, and fracture. Hoseini earned a BA from Sooreh Art University in Tehran, Iran and dual MFA degrees from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL and Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY. The artist has participated in exhibitions at MoMA PS1, 56Henry, New York, NY; The Arts Club, London, UK; Galerie Isa, Mumbai, India; The Union League Club of Chicago, Chicago IL; and The Munich Cultural Center at Pasinger Fabrik, Munich, Germany; among others. In 2017, Hoseini had her first solo exhibition, Of Strangers and Parrots, at Rachel Uffner Gallery, and she curated the exhibition Other Hours at 601 Artspace, both New York, NY. In 2019, Hoseini curated She Models for Her as part of the inaugural exhibition, Open Call, at The Shed, New York, NY and participated in an exhibition at Ca' del Duca, curated by Tamara Chalabi and Ruya Maps in Venice, IT, coinciding with the Venice Biennale. The artist lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
