Shadi Harouni

Shadi Harouni (b. Hamedan, Iran) is an artist based in New York City. Through film and sculpture, text, and collected folklore, Harouni creates spaces to dissect and contemplate language, form, and experience as shaped by inherited histories, broken promises, and hope in possible futures. Her research is centered on disavowed histories of dissent, often in her ancestral Kurdistan, relating quiet personal acts of resistance to global mass movements.


Harouni’s projects have been exhibited at Queens Museum (NY), Kunstmuseum Bonn (DE), Prague City Museum (CZ), DMC Gallery, Toronto (CA), Fondazione Ratti (IT), Centro Pecci (IT). Her work has been featured in Art Forum, New York Times, The Guardian, among other publications. She has been awarded the Gattuso Prize, Harpo Foundation Award, residencies at Civitella Ranieri (IT), Skowhegan (ME), SOMA (MX), Artists Research Lab, Como (IT). Harouni is Professor and Head of Studio Arts at New York University.
