Ibrahim Quraishi are conceptual artist, writer, choreographer and artistic director of Compagnie Faim de Siecle (NY/Paris). His work is based on the transformation of space, an immersive narrative and a pro-active performative dialogue through digital and human interface. His pieces consciously examine the dynamics of “migration,” dispossession and cohabitation within the highly rigid socio-political spheres of our imagined communities.

Graduate of Middle East Languages and Literature from Columbia University, New York and a former student of Edward W. Said, over the past 10 years, Quraishi has been collaborating with internationally diverse artists such as Paul D. Miller a.k.a. DJ Spooky, Norscq, Aziz, Shahzia Sikander, Vijay Iyer, Pamela Z, Masayasu Nakanishi, Mike C. Ladd, Komar & Melamid, Valery Gergiev, Naeem Mohaiemen, and Hiam Abbass, a.o. His pieces have been presented in Paris, New York, Sarajevo, Munich, Nantes, Vienna, Antwerpen, Luxembourg, Kyoto, New Delhi, and Tokyo. Quraishi has won a number of prestigious awards including the National Endowment for the Arts Grant (2005), a Rockefeller Fellowship (2000, 2004 & 2005), the Islamic World Arts Initiative (2004) and Arts International grants for 2001 & 2003 to name a few.
