Maryam Hoseini uses painting, drawing, and installation to explore the contradictory tragedy of the human condition, while addressing political and personal complexities of identity and gender. In her work, Hoseini uses generic architectures to develop collective scenes of drama where bodies are exposed in the midst of absurd actions and unsettled situations. The simplified interiors heighten the duality of the scenes, which alternately depict the tenderness of a homosocial imaginary while highlighting the inherent violence of alienation. Her work questions how we navigate society as gendered beings, and envisions new social spaces in which primal desires are unrestrained by conventions and social norms.

Maryam Hoseini (b. 1988, Tehran, Iran) lives and works in New York. She received her BFA from Sooreh Art University in Tehran, Iran in 2012 and MFA degrees from Bard College and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, both in 2016. Hoseini’s recent solo exhibitions include “Promise To Be Good,” Deborah Schamoni Gallery, Germany (2021); “After You,” Green Art Gallery, Dubai (2020); and “Yes Sky,” Rachel Uffner Gallery, New York (2020). She has participated in group exhibitions at The New Museum, New York (2021); The Shed, New York (2019); Ca’ del Duca, Venice (2019); Arts Club, London (2019); Galerie Isa, Mumbai (2019); MOMA PS1, New York (2018); Union League Club of Chicago (2016) among others. She will be included in the upcoming exhibition, “52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone”, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT (2022).
