Born in Shiraz, Iran and raised on the coast of Virginia, Fereshteh Toosi is an artist who collects and recombines sounds, words, images, and actions. Her participatory works engage multiple senses in various ways, from community driven oral history projects to guerrilla interventions in public places.

Fereshteh received a BA from Oberlin College and lived in Japan for two years before completing her MFA from Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Art. She held teaching positions in media art and theory in Maryland and was the Faculty Fellow in Arts and Civic Engagement at Syracuse University before joining the fulltime faculty at Columbia College Chicago.
