IEA Resident Artist Farah Mohammad

The Institute for Electronic Arts (IEA) announces an exciting line up of resident artists in the Fall semester 2024. Farah Mohammad (b. 1993, Karachi, Pakistan) is a printmaker, installation artist, and educator based in NYC.

Some of her most recent works have been monotypes, sculptural woodcut prints, and etchings of architectural structures that symbolize resilience. Her process of creating prints, where she breaks images down into shapes around which she builds the main subject, enables her to take an emotional inventory of their personal symbolism. 
 
Through printmaking Mohammad combines anthropological research with her fascination with urban architecture. She draws inspiration from images she captures of spaces undergoing change. Through her work she creates a visual reality for herself, where her past and present, her Pakistani and her American identities can all coexist. 
 
Mohammad received her BA from Bennington College and her MFA from Columbia University. Her exhibition highlights include a solo exhibition at Nyama Fine Art, New York, and group exhibitions at the Moss Art Center, Blacksburg, VA; Print Center New York (PCNY), Half Gallery, EFA’s Blackburn 20|20 Gallery, The Jewish Museum, ChaShaMa, Field Projects, and Local Project Art Space, all in New York. She was the Artist in Residence at the Cornerstone Studios (2022-2023) and was also the recipient of the LMCC Arts Center Residency (2023) the Keyholder Residency at LESP (2021-2022), the EFA Blackburn Print Excellence Award (2021), and the Lucas T. Carlson Grant at Columbia University (2020). Most recently Mohammad was awarded the NYSCA/NYFA Artist Printmaking Fellowship (2023) and the MacDowell Fellowship, NH (Summer 2024). Mohammad’s work is in the permanent collection at the Baltimore Museum of Art. The IEA is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, The New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature, the Schein-Joseph Endowment and the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr Foundation. 

The IEA is a high technology research studio facility within the School of Art and Design, which encourages and supports projects that involve interactive multi-media systems, experimental sonic/video production, digital imaging, and publications. The IEA is committed to developing cultural interactions spurred by technological experimentation and artistic investigations. 

The IEA offers two types of residency: Time-based/ New Media and Print Media. The IEA video and sound studio offers artists an integrated system with real-time video, image-processing software, hardware and video capture. The IEA’s Experimental Print Media Program Residency seeks artists who want to explore Digital Printmedia technologies to further and expand their working practice. Artists  have access to state-of-the-art digital arts facilities.
