    About the Artist
    Shiva Ahmadi was born in Tehran, Iran in 1975 and currently lives and works in California, where she is an assistant professor of art at UC Davis. She received her B.F.A. from Azad University, Tehran, in 1998, and her M.F.A. in painting and drawing from Cranbrook Academy of Arts, Michigan, in 2005. Recent exhibitions include: Home Land Security, organized by the For-Site Foundation and curated by Cheryl Haines, San Francisco, CA; Global/Local 1960-2015: Six Artists from Iran, curated by Lynn Gumpert, at the Grey Art Gallery, NYU; and Fireflies in the Night Take Wing, curated by Barbara London and Robert Storr, at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation in Athens, Greece. In 2014 the Asia Society Museum in New York commissioned Ahmadi to create a new work as part of their ongoing In Focus series, where it was then exhibited in summer 2014.  Ahmadi’s work is in the permanent collections of numerous museums, including: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Asia Society Museum, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Los Angeles; Detroit Institute of Arts; DePaul Art Museum, Chicago, IL; Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY and the TDIC Corporate Collection, Abu Dhabi, UAE. The artist has upcoming solo exhibitions in 2017 at Leila Heller Gallery in New York.
