MFA Alum Luma Jasim Receives Mass MoCA Residency

Luma Jasim, MFA Class of 2017, has been selected to join The Studios at MASS MoCA this December, as one of ten artists.

Congratulations Luma!

Jasim is an interdisciplinary Iraqi-born artist. Her art deals with war, violence and her experience with immigration and the acculturation, which rose from that. 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 writing, painting, mixed media, performance, video and animation to name some. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Luma lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
