Farrah Karapetian works with photography in a sculptural field, emphasizing the plasticity of the medium of photography, the constructed nature of imagery, and the pathos of everyday life. She earned her MFA from UCLA (2008) and BA in fine art from Yale University (2000). A MacDowell Fellow (2010) and an artist-in-residence at the Wende Museum and Archive of the Cold War (2009), she has had solo exhibitions and projects with Sandroni.Rey (CA), Geoffrey Young (MA), and the Kantor Gallery (NY), as well as group exhibitions internationally. She lectures frequently at venues such as Art Center College of Design, USC, and UCLA, and her writing has appeared in publications such as Speculative Structures (Mark Batty Publisher 2011), Whitehot Magazine, and the Brooklyn Rail. Current projects include a national investigation of issues of representation in politics and imagemaking, engaging the interdisciplinary potential of the photogram as it can involve performance and sculpture to reenact iconic images of protest with students at universities around the country.
