Operating in the dimensions of photography, video, installation, and socially engaged art, Meghdari creates narratives that can transcend and complicate difference. Her work is driven by her bicultural background as an Iranian-American woman and is a reflection of culture as well as the self.
Meghdari holds an MFA in Photography, Video & Related Media from The School of Visual Arts and a B.A in Communication from The University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. She has been twice awarded the Alice Beck-Odette Scholarship Award as well as the Thomas Reiss Memorial Award. In 2016, she was an artist-in-residence at the Engaging Artists Residency Program with the More-Art Organization. Her photography and videos have been included at the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural & Educational Center (2018), the 10th Annual Governors Island Art Fair (2017), and the Queens Museum of Art (2016) among others.
