About Joshua Hashemzadeh
Joshua H. Hashemzadeh (b. 1993), has a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and lives and works in Los Angeles. His work, often derived from collected objects and typographies is built around an investigation of language and its link to art-historical pedagogy, socio-economic critique, and cultural iconicism. As a mixed-race first-generation American, both his curatorial and artistic practices reflect on ideas of belonging and ideological systems of value & classification. Recent work has been featured in several exhibitions with recent highlights including Nomad, Torrance Art Museum, CA; Semblance | Sunshine, Torrance Art Museum, CA; Office Hours, Main Museum, Los Angeles; FIVE, Baik Art, Los Angeles; Poster, Black Ball Projects, Brooklyn; and Our little Angle, Diego Rivera Gallery, San Francisco. Notable curatorial projects also include Semblance | Sunshine, Torrance Art Museum, Torrance; 2020 Armory Show Presents, New York; Re-Verb, Baik Art, Los Angeles; and Henosis, Baik Art Seoul, South Korea.
