Biography:Laleh Khorramian’s practice incorporates the cosmological thinking of ancient cultures and their complex mythologies and spiritual vocabularies with her own imagined worlds, synthesizing them into “histories” that are both futuristic and ancient. In the past decade, her work has spanned stop-motion animation films, sound, light, monoprints, drawings, painted landscapes, portraits, and collage. The Iranian-born Khorramian has exhibited internationally in both solo and group exhibitions at venues including the Baltic Center for Contemporary Art, Newcastle, UK; Liverpool Bienniel; Fine Arts Center Gallery, University of Arkansas; Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Winston Salem, North Carolina; September Gallery, Hudson, New York; The Third Line, Dubai, UAE; Times Square, New York; and Art Basel, Switzerland. She is the recipient of, among other honors, the Baltic Artist Award, Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant; Pat Hearn and Colin De Land Foundation Grant, Florida Individual Artists Fellowship, and Artist Fellowship Award. Press includes the 2021 New York Times story “Artists on Artists to Watch, and Maybe Collect.” She previously taught or served as a visiting artist at the Pratt Institute, Columbia University, Cooper Union, and Grinnell College.
