Nooshin Rostami is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist and educator born in Shahroud, Iran. She immigrated to the United States to pursue her graduate studies, but soon after her move, she found herself in a place of exile and uncertain of the possibility to return to her home country. This displacement shaped the core questions of her practice. As a multidisciplinary artist, Rostami works predominantly in performance, installation, and sculpture where a series of abstract forms mutate into an amalgam of objects, constituting personal, social & political narratives.
