Sobia Ahmad

Born and raised in Pakistan, Sobia Ahmad moved to the United States at the age of fourteen. Highlighting the inseparability of the self and larger power structures, her interdisciplinary work dissects how spiritual, social, historical, and political forces shape intimate personal narratives and broader community experiences. Ahmad’s work has been reviewed in several major publications, including Al Jazeera English, and has been exhibited both nationally and internationally at venues such as the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles, Sordoni Art Gallery at Wilkes-Barre University in Pennsylvania, and Queen Mary University in London, UK. Ahmad was awarded an artist fellowship at the Vermont Studio Center for winter 2018 and is the 2018/19 recipient of the yearlong Next Generation/Sanctuary Artist Fellowship at VisArts in Rockville, MD
