Erica Kermani (b. 1983, Los Angeles) is a Brooklyn-based transdisciplinary artist dedicated to movement building and collective liberation through art and media, technological sovereignty, and Iranian, Jewish, and queer metaphysics and mysticism. Her artwork utilizes scholarship, memory and archive to produce video, installation, and speculative fiction that interrogate and unsettle dominant narratives, towards healing of self, community, and Earth. Erica has presented her work internationally at Mona Bismarck American Center (Paris), the Science Gallery Dublin, Musée des Arts Decoratif, the International Center of Photography Museum, and Frameline.
Erica serves as technologist and educator for Community Tech New York and as adjunct faculty at Parsons The New School where she teaches about ancestral and emerging technologies. Erica is a worker-owner of the QTBIPOC- and immigrant-led cooperative Shadow Work Media focused on transformative storytelling. Previously she organized the festival Radical Networks (2015-2019) which she co-founded. Erica has developed curriculum, public programs and published research at organizations including Digital Equity Lab, Data & Society, and Eyebeam. She holds a BA in Visual Arts (Media/Computing) and Political Science at the University of California, San Diego and an MFA in Design and Technology from the Parsons School for Design (NYC/Paris).
