Maryam Hoseini

Maryam Hoseini (b. 1988, Tehran) explores the subtle relationship between bodies, physical space, and the politics of narrative. Her work utilises 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, Annondale-on-Hudson, NY. The artist has participated in exhibitions at MoMA PS1, 56Henry, New York, NY; The Arts Club, London; Galerie Isa, Mumbai; 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 co-curated the exhibition Other Hours at 601 Artspace, both New York, NY. Hoseini lives and works in New York, NY.
