Iman Djouini

Iman Djouini (b. Algiers, Algeria) is an artist and educator. She received a Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking from Tulane University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Art History from The Maryland Institute College of Art. Her research-based practice explores the employment of language and design as tools for shaping perception. She critically investigates theoretical frameworks like binary opposition, delineation and compartmentalization in contested cultural and political histories. Recent works have looked into uses of symbolism found in arrangements like flags, textiles, tile pattern and text. Valuing the importance of teaching, Djouini has lead printmaking and design courses that nurture a critical dialogue with the next generation of artists, designers and thinkers.
