(b. 1988 in Karaj, Iran)
Living in Brooklyn, NY
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 stems specifically from her experience of living in a constant state of displacement. Working with a variety of mediums and themes, the work cultivates into an eclectic visual form and is a reflection of culture as well as the self, pursuing distinct and obscure ideas.
Meghdari holds an MFA in Photography, Video & Related Media from The School of Visual Arts, where she was twice awarded the Alice Beck-Odette Scholarship Award as well as the Thomas Reiss Memorial Award. Her photography and videos have been included at the 10th Annual Governors Island Art Fair (2017), the Knockdown Center (2017), and the Queens Museum of Art (2016) among others.
