Maryam Palizgir earned her MFA in Studio as a Welch Fellow at Georgia State University, and her BFA in Graphic design from the Alzahra Art University, Tehran, Iran. She is an interdisciplinary visual artist works in a variety of different mediums. Her process involves deconstructing and reconstructing an image, object, or matter through mixed media and material manipulation. Her work explores different notions such as identity, environmental issues, social practice, and socio-cultural studies. In her recent projects, she intends to focus on the complexity of space by making sculptural installations and also brings photography into this exchange. She is seeking new ways of seeing through the experimental cross-fertilization of drawing, sculpture, and photography, which stimulated a philosophically-oriented questioning of vision and perception.She teaches courses in the studio foundation and graphic design programs. Palizgir is a studio artist at Atlanta Contemporary art center and has exhibited and presented her work in many exhibitions in the United States, Iran, UK, France, Russia, and Germany. She was an artist in residence with the Cornelius Art Foundation in Lagamas, France in 2014. She won the first prize in the 6th Iran International Green Film and visual art Festival (IIGFF6) in the section of conceptual arts in 2017. In 2019, she had recent exhibitions, titled” Material Culture” at Elga Wimmer Chelsea Gallery, New York, “No place like home” at Hathaway Gallery, Atlanta, and also participated in Photo London art fair 2019.
