Nasim Moghadam, a multidisciplinary installation-based artist, explores discrimination, hyphenated identity, and women’s constraints in her work, crafting narratives inspired by global endeavors for women’s unalienable rights. Meticulously exploring materials symbolizing femininity and societal constraints, she seeks a transformative shift at Recology, allowing materials to guide her creative process and shape the trajectory of her work.
Born in Iran, Moghadam holds an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and serves as an Adjunct Professor at the California College of the Arts and Foothill College. She has earned awards from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, H.A.R.D. Foundation, and an Outstanding Graduate Award from SFAI.
Her works have been featured in international festivals in Italy, Japan, and New York, as well as at esteemed local venues such as SFMOMA, SOMArts, San Francisco Art Commission, Museum of Craft and Design, Southern Exposure, Minnesota Street Project, Aggregate Space Gallery, Root Division, Kala Art Gallery, and O’Hanlon Center.
Residency: October 2024 - January 2025
