Zalika Azim (b.1990) is a New York-based artist conceptualizing her practice through photography, installation, performance, collage and sound. Exploring the complexities of personal and collective narratives, her work investigates the ways in which notions of memory, displacement, and the body are negotiated in relation to nationhood and the American landscape.
Azim’s work has exhibited with galleries, institutions and alternative spaces within the United States and abroad including The Dean Collection, International Center of Photography, Pfizer, 8th Floor Gallery, Diego Rivera Gallery and the Instituto Superior de Arte. Zalika holds a BFA in Photography and Imaging from the Tisch School of the Arts and a BA in Social and Cultural Analysis focused in Africana, Gender and Sexuality Studies from New York University.
Zalika is currently an artist-in-resident with Baxter St at CCNY’s Workspace Residency.
