Afrang Nordlöf Malekian

Afrang Nordlöf Malekian is an artist with a master’s degree in Fine Arts from The Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm and the Dutch Art Institute in Arnhem (2022). He works with history’s unnoticed creators and puts history into use as a form of documentation and aspiration that calls for improbable and impossible futurities. His work examines how narratives and hierarchies disappear, return, and transform in the most unexpected ways. Afrang Nordlöf Malekian is represented by Moderna Museet, the Public Art Agency Sweden, Botkyrka municipality, Uppsala Art Museum, and the Arab Image Foundation Library. He has previously conducted artistic research at the Arab Image Foundation and was artist-in-residence at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. He has exhibited at venues such as the 10th Berlin Biennale, Moderna Museet, Public Art Agency Sweden, West Den Haag, and Tensta konsthall. Afrang Nordlöf Malekian also curates exhibitions and programs as part of the nomadic film and culture project noncitizen, and his work has been published in magazines and platforms such as Glänta and Paletten.
