Luma Jasim

Artist

Luma Jasim is an interdisciplinary Iraqi-born artist based in Brooklyn, NY, and Boise, ID. She has lived through three wars, an economic blockade, and the catastrophe of the US invasion, and later, her immigration to the US. Jasim's multimedia body of work explores the relationship between violence, politics, gender, and emotional memory. In her artwork, she uses the personal to address the political and activate the viewer's curiosity. Jasim often reconstructs her memories, traumas, and thoughts on displacement, belonging, and strangeness in various mediums, including mixed media painting, performance, video, and animation. In 2017, she accomplished an MFA in Fine Arts with full scholarship from Parsons School of Design, The New School, New York, NY. In 2018 her work "Frozen Roots" was Shortlisted for The Tenth Passion For Freedom London Arts Festival, London, UK. In 2020, Jasim received the Juror merit award for the 2020 Idaho Triennial, Boise Art Museum. Most recently she was awarded a 2021 Alexa Rose Fellow. Luma's work has been shown nationally and internationally.
