Maria Kheirkhah is a British-Iranian artist, curator and academic whose multi- disciplinary art practice is generated by the interplay of history, politics and media through curating, installation, film, photography and performance. Her artistic work is concerned with societies in trauma which draws upon fiction and filmic imagery as a means of exploring psychological, political and social experiences and responses.

She holds a B.A and MA. in Fine Art and a PhD in contemporary visual culture, art history and criticism from Chelsea College of Arts, London.

Kheirkhah lives and works in London and is currently an Associate Lecturer at Chelsea College of Arts.
