Amy Khoshbin is an Iranian-American Brooklyn-based artist merging performance, video, collage, costume and sound to examine our individual and collective compulsion to create, transform, and sometimes destroy the stories of who we are, who we think we are, and who we think we should be. As part of INTERSECTION she, in collaboration with art production team House of Trees, will be sharing the project Word On the Street, a series of large scale protest banners created from collaborations between internationally acclaimed writers and artists. The first installation in this series is a collaboration between Amy Khoshbin and writer Anne Carson.
