BIRANG, Daria

2015-BIR-portrait

Born 1972, Boston, United States. Lives and works between Sicily and New York City, United States.

 

Daria Birang studied at the School of the Museum of fine Arts in boston and AKI, Academy for fine Arts in enschede (the Netherlands), from which she holds a BFA. An artist of Dutch and iranian origin, her work ranges from painting and collage to photobook making and from curation
to art direction, all related to photography. Over the years she has developed an obsession with photography, which grew into a practice of making books and exhibitions with some of the most recognised photographers working today. Her approach in editing and curating stems from her background in art and therefore can be regarded as rather untraditional.

 

Daria Birang is curator of exhibition of Alex Majoli and Paolo Pellegrin, Congo, at The Rencontres d’Arles 2015.
