Sheida Soleimani

Sheida Soleimani is an Iranian-American artist, currently residing in Providence, Rhode Island.  The daughter of political refugees that were persecuted by the Iranian government in the early 1980s, Soleimani inserts her own critical perspectives on historical and contemporary socio-political occurrences in Iran and the greater Middle East.  Her works meld sculpture, collage and photography to create collisions in reference to Iranian politics throughout the past century, as well as dissecting how both the East and West respond to international climates.  By focusing on media trends and the dissemination of societal occurrences through the news, source images from popular press and social media leaks are adapted to exist within alternate scenarios.
