About the Artist
Asma Kazmi is a performance artist and a sculptor who approaches her practice from a post installation/object centric position, which allows her to create transdisciplinary, relational works where people, media and objects come together.

Her work has been exhibited at venues such as H&R Block Space, Kansas City; Grand Arts, Kansas City; University of Missouri, St. Louis; Hunt Gallery, Webster University, St Louis; Boots Contemporary Art Space, St Louis; The Guild Gallery, New York; Galerie Sans Titre, Brussels, Belgium; Gallery 400, University of Illinois in Chicago; Boston Underground Film Festival; Women In Film & Video/New England; and the MassArt Film Society, Boston.
