Meriem Bennani



Meriem Bennani is known, among other things, for her zany Instagram art; for her recent solo show at MoMA PS1 (featuring a multi-channel Moroccan travelogue told from the point of view of an animated fly); and for gawky sculptural video installations featuring interviews with Moroccan teenagers that were featured as part of the Whitney Biennial.

Originally from Rabat, Morocco, Meriem Bennani earned her BFA at Cooper Union in New York and her MFA from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. She currently lives and works in New York and exhibits internationally.
