Ali Kheradyar’s interdisciplinary practice explores gender and sexuality through performative gestures in photography, video, movement, sound, and text. With an ongoing interest in ‘the frame,’ Kheradyar isolates and presents imagery as performance to draw attention to moments of intimacy and desire. Kheradyar’s Iranian heritage informs the work and the representation of the body; elements are veiled yet revealed, while a tendency towards minimalism brings the body to the forefront. Kheradyar received a Bachelor of Arts in Dance, Music, and Performance from NYU’s Gallatin School, a Master of Arts in Performance Studies from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, and a Master of Fine Arts from the California Institute of the Arts. Kheradyar's work has been exhibited at the Craft and Folk Art Museum, Torrance Art Museum, Visitor Welcome Center, MiM Gallery, Western Project, PØST, Third Streaming, and Project Space Kreuzberg. Ali Kheradyar lives and works in Los Angeles.
