Arghavan Khosravi’s (b. 1984, Shahr-e Kord, Iran) studio practice mobilizes visual art as a vehicle for
cultural transformation. Her 3D paintings take a conscious look at how the value system transmitted
through iconography in ancient Persian miniatures continues to shape Iranian gender politics today.
Khosravi earned an MFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design after completing the studio
art program at Brandeis University, previously earning a BFA in Graphic Design from Tehran Azad
University and an MFA in Illustration from the University of Tehran. She has participated in numerous
group exhibitions, at venues such as The Currier Museum of Art Manchester, NH; The Museum of
Contemporary Art, Yinchuan, China; Newport Art Museum, Newport, RI; and Provincetown Art
Association and Museum, MA; among others. Khosravi’s residencies include The Currier Museum of Art,
Manchester, NH; The Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown, MA; the Studios at MassMoCA, North
Adams, MA; Monson Arts, Monson, ME; and Residency Unlimited, Brooklyn, NY. She is a 2019 recipient
of the Joan Mitchell Foundation’s Painters & Sculptors Grant and a 2017-8 recipient of the Walter
Feldman Fellowship. The artist’s work belongs to the collections of Those Rose Art Museum, The PAFA
Museum, The Newport Art Museum and The Rhode Island School of Design Museum.
