About Shaghayegh Cyrous

Shaghayegh Cyrous is an Iranian-American artist and curator currently living and working in the bay area. Her work has dealt with cross-cultural communication and translation, addressing predicaments of estrangement and distance caused by political and cultural power dynamics. She incorporates interactive time-based strategies such as socially engaged art, participatory performances, and digital technologies such as live video chats and video installations to explore the compression of time and space resulting from digital technologies, and how digital media plays this critical role in the lives of exiles and immigrants and currently the global physical distancing due to the COVID-19 situation.

She received her BA in Visual Art from Science and Culture University in Tehran and her MFA in Social Practice from California College of the Arts. She is a recipient of Bangkit Arise international art residency and cultural exchange of Clarion Alley Mural Project and the Asian Art Museum, between Indonesia and San Francisco. She has exhibited and performed internationally at venues including Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, Saba Museum in Tehran, Asian Art Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern, Jane Addams Hull-House Museum in Chicago, British Museum in London, and Anchorage Museum in Alaska.
