About Sameer Farooq's Print Subscription: Farooq's print subscription continues his exploration of internal images at a time when we are overcome by external ones. Following curator Massimiliano Gioni's claim that "pictures have always been swarming behind our eyelids" Farooq's imagery is drawn from a daily meditation practice and materialized in this instance through the medium of screenprint.

Artist Bio: Sameer Farooq (b. 1978) completed an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (2014) and a BFA from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam (2005). His interdisciplinary practice investigates tactics of representation and enlists the tools of installation, photography, documentary filmmaking, writing and the methods of anthropology to explore various forms of collecting, interpreting, and display.

He has exhibited internationally and nationally at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Contemporary Art Gallery (Vancouver), the Art Gallery of York University, Maquis Projects (Izmir), Blackwood Gallery (Mississauga), The Lilley Museum (Reno, NV), Trankat (Tétouan, Morocco), Sol Koffler Gallery (Providence), Artellewa (Cairo), and Sanat Limani (Istanbul). Farooq appeared on the 2017 Sobey Art Award long list. He is currently working as a visual artist, designer, educator, and is a member of the documentary film collective Smoke Signal Projects as director.
