Marzieh Mosavarzadeh

Marzieh Mosavarzadeh is an Iranian artist who lives, learns, teaches, and makes art on the unceded, ancestral, and traditional lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Watuth), and Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nations of the Coast Salish peoples in Vancouver, BC. Currently, Marzieh is a PhD candidate specializing in art education in the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy at The University of British Columbia. As an immigrant artist and scholar, Marzieh has always found herself in-between places, and through this inbetweenness, she has come to hold a love for place (topophilia) in relation to both her artistic and scholarly practices. Her work has been continuously entangled with exploring the potentialities that reside within the process of walking in/with place, as well as the kind of artmaking one can pursue in response to the practice of walking in/with place, and how such a practice can eventually create conditions for one to cultivate a sense of place. Marzieh holds her MFA and BFA degrees in visual arts.
