Creativity: Hustlers Fakers & Thieves

The Market Says You’re Not Worth It; Value with Laleh Khorramian

Laleh Khorramian was born in 1974 in Tehran, Iran.[1][2] She was raised in Orlando, Florida.[1] Khorramian studied at the Rhode Island School of Design; followed by study at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she earned a BFA degree in 1997.[3] She earned her MFA degree in 2004, from Columbia University, School of Visual Arts.[3]

Animation, digital media and found footage supplements use of traditional artistic media in her practice, like collage, mono-typing and drawing. In a vacillating process between them, Khorramian integrates fiction with spectacle and theatre constructions to explore the discarded and chance outcomes as a creative strategy.

Khorramian is a recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant[4] and the Gottlieb Foundation Grant.
