Nuveen Barwari

Nashville, TN


Nuveen’s work is an amalgamation of memories and traditions gathered together through mixed media practices in a way to both keep hold of heritage and bridge the gap between the different generations of Kurds today. Her childhood consisted of living in Kurdistan, Iraq and Nashville, TN. Nuveen’s studio work is a reaction to displacement. The Kurdish themes that are portrayed in her work are a catalyst to spark social commentary and a means to help preserve an often forgotten and voiceless people of the Middle East. She portrays this narrative through mediums including painting, photography, screen printing, mixed media, and installation including traditional Kurdish attire.
