Miriam Simun makes creative disruptions: objects, documents and experiences that that poke, provoke, and re-imagine existing systems. Based in scientific, historical and ethnographic research, much of her work interrogates the implications of socio-technical and ecological change. Simun’s work has been presented internationally, including the Museum of Arts and Design, Rauschenberg Project Space, Ronald Feldman Gallery, Postmasters Gallery, Kappatos Gallery and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Her work has been supported by Creative Capital, Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, Joan Mitchell Foundation and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and recognized internationally in publications including the BBC, New York Times, CBC, MTV, The New Yorker, Forbes, Art21 and ARTNews. Simun holds a bachelors degree from the London School of Economics and a masters degree in Interactive Telecommunications from NYU.
