Alexandra “Rex” Delafkaran is an interdisciplinary artist from San Francisco, California. The foundation of her practice is rooted in methods and acts of translation, between multiple conflicting systems: static and motion, soft and hard, elements of Iranian American identity, body and ceramic, Iranian and queer, concrete and ceramic, English and Farsi, dance and sculpture.
After earning her BFA in Sculpture and Performance Art from the San Francisco Art Institute, Rex relocated to Washington, DC working and exhibiting in local galleries and alternative art spaces. She curates independent projects and exhibits her work along the coast, most recently HYPHEN AMERICAN at The George Washington University in collaboration with Tsedaye Makonnen. Rex is currently Exhibition Director at the non-profit gallery and fellowship program Hamiltonian Artists in Washington, DC.
