Navid Sinaki is a video artist and writer from Tehran currently living in Los Angeles, California. His work has screened at museums and art houses around the world, including the Modern Museum in Stockholm, Lincoln Center, British Film Institute, REDCAT, and Cineteca Nacional in Mexico. His debut novel Medusa of the Roses will be released by Grove Atlantic in 2024.
Sinaki recently visited Shangri La in March to conduct research on the museum’s collection as part of his Residency. Sinaki will return to Shangri La in October 2023 to exhibit his body of work, The Infinite Garden, a tale that re-imagines and activates the Shangri La historic collection to tell a queer epic story inspired by the mythological works of poets Ferdowsi and Nizami.
