PARTICIPANT / Yasaman Tamizkar

  • Name Yasaman Tamizkar
  • Country Iran

studied Visual Communication at the Tehran University of Art in Iran. Before graduation, I joined Rybon Art Center (an international, independent, and artist-led institute based in Tehran) as a volunteer and continued working there as the Administrative Assistant. Meanwhile, I worked in different fields of art, e.g. animation, VFX, photography, and illustration and participated in a few group exhibitions. Working at Hepta Gallery helped me shape the criteria I wanted to achieve during the years of working in the field of arts. Being the Program Coordinator and Director’s Assistant at the gallery gave me the opportunity to enhance my skills of coordinating and curating shows. Participating in Curatorial Intensive South Asia 2018 program at Khoj International Artists’ Association conducted by the Goethe-Institut, gave me the opportunity to begin my professional career in the curatorial field with an interdisciplinary approach. I am now focusing on the Middle Eastern and Asian arts and culture, both by conducting art shows and conducting research on the subject. I worked as a Program Coordinator at Kooshk Residency, which is a non-profit space for arts and culture in Tehran. This position at Kooshk also put me in close contact with international artists, through which I could focus more on my research, which helps me develop her work.
