Minoosh Zomorodinia is an Iranian-born interdisciplinary artist who makes visible the emotional and psychological reflections of her mind’s eye inspired by nature and her environments. Having immigrated from Iran to the USA in 2009, her work expresses the uncertainty of living in the USA caused by the tension between her country of origin and the USA.
In her recent work, Zomorodinia has used walking as a medium to create imaginary spaces from the routes of her walk as if they are sites of homes. These delineated spaces draw boundaries in space and use the app to challenge the notion of power and ownership.
Zomorodinia earned her MFA in new genres from the San Francisco Art Institute, and holds a Masters degree in Graphic Design and BA in Photography from Azad University in Tehran. She has received several awards, residences, and grants including the Kala Media Fellowship Award, Headlands Center for the Arts, California Art Council grants. She has exhibited locally and internationally. She currently lives and works in the Bay Area.
Residency: February 2021 - May 2021
Art Exhibition: Friday, May 21 & Saturday, May 22 & Tuesday, May 25
