Biography:

Azin Seraj is an Iranian native and Canadian citizen who currently lives in the United States. Her video, photography, and multimedia installations reflect the varied textures of her transnational experience of displacement and alienation but also of unexpected connections. She uses sounds and images to create visually and socially lush experiences, layering spaces and multiple time frames. With an interdisciplinary approach to marginalized experiences, Seraj explores connections between colonial histories, citizen journalism, activist networks and contemporary politics in South West Asia, South Asia and North Africa’s diaspora.

Seraj’s work has been featured internationally in exhibitions and festivals including SFMOMA, Open Space Arts Society in Canada, Tate Liverpool, (S8) Monstra De Cinema Periférico in Spain, Berkeley Art Museum, Minnesota Street Project, Chicago Underground Film Festival, and Croatian Association of Artists. She is the recipient of the 2019 Kala Media Artist Award. Seraj is a Visiting Lecturer at University of California Davis and Adjunct Professor at Saint’s Mary’s college.
