Meena Hasan’s work articulates a South Asian American diasporic experience through its nuanced approach to issues of representation, subjectivity and personhood. Working in painting and handmade materials, the artist constructs her works through a metaphorical engagement with material and process—developing a complex language of mark-making that asks the viewer to participate in the work itself. Hasan’s work both states and questions her own historical perspective while leaving space for the viewers to reimagine their own.
Hasan (born 1987, NYC) received her B.A. from Oberlin College in 2009 and her MFA from Yale School of Art in 2013, where she won the Carol Schlosberg Memorial Prize for Painting. In 2010, she was awarded the Terna Prize Affiliated Fellowship at the American Academy in Rome. She has participated in group exhibitions at the Center for Book Arts, NYC, The Stedelijk Museum, Den Bosch, The Netherlands, Deitch Projects, NYC, Nathalie Karg Gallery, New York, NY and the 2022 New England Triennial at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum and Fruitlands Museum. Recent solo exhibitions have been shown at LAUNCHF18, NYC in 2022 and at the Lee Gallery at the Miami University Museum of Art in Oxford OH in February of 2023. Meena has taught Painting at Rutgers University - Newark, Pratt Institute's Painting MFA program, the School of Visual Arts at Boston University and Studio in a School, NYC. She is currently Assistant Professor in Painting at RISD, Providence and lives and works in NYC.
