Maryam Jafri is an artist working across media and genres -video, sculpture, photography, and performance. Her practice is decidedly research-based and interdisciplinary. When delving into a particular topic, she often examines its historical, political and economic implications, as well as how it is represented in popular visual culture. Her works borrow aesthetically from scenography and pop art, while the issues they raise often concern the insidious relationship between capital and self-optimization. She holds a BA in English & American Literature from Brown University, an MA from NYU/Tisch School of The Arts and is a graduate of the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program.
