Artist bio: Bazmandegan is an Iranian American pursuing a B.A. in Visual Arts in his last quarter at UC San Diego. He has exhibited his work at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the University Art Gallery, the Adam D. Kamil Gallery, the ARTifact Gallery and the FHG. He is the president of Triton Art, a student organization he founded for which he has worked to organize over 50 workshops and social events in the past 3 years for UC San Diego’s art community. He has curated several shows at the Triton Art Gallery in support of undergraduate students and was the co-director of the Undergraduate Art Show at the UAG in 2016. He has interned at the Stuart Collection and is currently interning at the UC San Diego Division of Arts and Humanities. Bazmandegan was nominated for the Princess Grace grant and awarded the Warren College Research scholarship, the Italo Scanga Memorial scholarship, Hajim Family Alumni Scholarship, and the Russell Foundation grant for his long-term project ”Uprooted”. Part of his current practice involves turning academic administration spaces into art galleries featuring the work of UC San Diego artists to initiate a movement to foster more art in a predominantly STEM driven campus.
