Biography
Artist Info

Sheida Soleimani’s work explores intersections of art and activism, melding sculpture, performance, film and photography to highlight critical perspectives on events across the Middle East. Through constructing staged sets in her studio and documenting them with the camera, Soleimani focuses on the dissemination of information, adapting images from press and social media leaks to exist within alternative scenarios. Soleimani is the daughter of political refugees persecuted by the Iranian government in the 1980s; as such, engagement with Iran is an ongoing facet of her practice. Sheida Soleimani (b. 1990) received her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2015.
