Amy Khoshbin is an Iranian-American Brooklyn-based artist, activist, and educator. Her practice, as an artist and pedagogue, builds bridges between disparate communities to counteract fear with a collective sense of empowered radical acceptance. She pushes the formal and conceptual boundaries of art-making to foster progressive social change through performance, social practice, installation, sculpture, video, collage, rap music, teaching and writing. She has shown at venues such as The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Times Square Arts, Artpace, The High Line, Socrates Sculpture Park, Queens Museum, VOLTA Art Fair, Leila Heller Gallery, Arsenal Contemporary, National Sawdust, World Trade Center Oculus, The Arts Center at Governors Island, and festivals such as River to River and South by Southwest. She has received residencies at spaces such as The Watermill Center, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Project for Empty Space, Anderson Ranch and Banff Centre for the Arts. She has received a NYFA Grant, Franklin Furnace Fund and a Rema Hort Mann Grant. Khoshbin received an MA from New York University in Tisch School of the Arts and a BA in Film and Media Studies at University of Texas at Austin. She has collaborated with Laurie Anderson, Karen Finley, Tina Barney and poet Anne Carson among others.
