Miriam Simun Eat Your Future

Miriam Simun

Miriam Simun makes art that introduces small revolutions into everyday life. Using installation, video and performance, her work invites viewers to see new possibilities in the mundane: from cheese to healthcare to handbags. She has exhibited and lectured across North America, including at Postmasters Gallery, the New Museum, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, CUNY Graduate Center and Concordia University. Simun holds a bachelor’s degree from the London School of Economics and a master’s degree in Interactive Telecommunications from NYU.
