Amy Khoshbin is an Iranian-American, Brooklyn-based artist merging performance, video, collage, costume and sound to examine our individual and collective compulsion to create, transform, and sometimes destroy the stories of who we are, who we think we are, and who we think we should be. She produces media and mythologies using humor and a handmade aesthetic to throw a counterpunch at the high-definition, profit-generating codes and signals that American audiences are trained and accustomed to consuming. She has shown her solo and collaborative work at venues such as Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), Abrons Arts Center, Mana Contemporary, NURTUREart, National Sawdust, the Invisible Dog Arts Center, Dixon Place, the Stone, and festivals such as River to River, South by Southwest, and MakerFaire. She has received a Rema Hort Mann Artist Community Engagement Grant and is on Creative Capital's On Our Radar for her recent project, The Myth of Layla. Khoshbin has degrees in Film and Media Studies from the University of Texas at Austin and a master's degree from the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University. She has collaborated with Laurie Anderson, Karen Finley, Tina Barney, and poets Anne Carson and Bob Currie, among others.
