Nooshin Rostami (b. Shahroud, Iran) is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist and educator. She grew up in Tehran and immigrated to the United States to pursue her graduate studies and so far has been unable to return to her home country.
In her work, she examines the impact of displacement as physical, emotional and psychological conditions. Through a metaphorical construction and a game-like problem solving process, she creates abstract spatial landscapes. 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.
Rostami has widely exhibited and presented her work in solo and group settings in Austria, Canada, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Mexico, Spain, and the United States. She has participated in residencies both locally and internationally such as BRIC Contemporary Art Program, NARS Foundation, and Tifa working studios.
