Niema Qureshi is an interdisciplinary artist and educator.

She investigates the intersection between art, science and computational technology within her arts practice and in the classroom setting with Chicago Public School students. Combining soft circuits (conductive thread and micro electronics) with textiles and art, Niema explores the physical and computational world and questions it’s relationship.

Niema has worked with CAPE (Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education) for the past seven years as a teaching artist and recently joined CAPE’s board of directors. She also designs arts integrated curriculum for the Olive Tree Arts Network.

She graduated from Oxford Brookes University, Oxford, England (BA, Visual Studies) and Chelsea College of Art and Design, London, England (MA, Fine Art).
