Leila Seyedzadeh is an Iranian interdisciplinary artist and curator who addresses ideas of imaginary landscapes and focuses on natural subjects such as mountains extracted from the subconscious. It is as if she is attaching pieces of her memories, and by doing so, she is destroying their meaning, thus creating a landscape immersed in placelessness. Her curatorial project was born out of a collective search to dissolve the unseen boundaries between what is free of the physical and what is not. She holds an MFA in Painting & Printmaking from Yale School of Art in 2019 a BFA in Painting from The University of Science and Culture in 2014. She received the H.Lee Hirsche prize in 2019 and the Soma Summer fellowship at Yale School of Art in 2018. Her work and curatorial project have been featured in ANTE, Art Spiel, Museum of non-visible art, and Fleur.
