Jenna Hamed is an artist & art worker based in Queens, NY.

Hamed obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Apparel, Textiles and Merchandising from Eastern Michigan University, and a Master’s Degree in Arts Politics from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Her artwork centers collaboration and public engagement through performance, image making (including printmaking and analog photography) and poetry.

With a fascination for documentation and archiving methodology, Hamed uses poetics and mark-making practices for extracting the mysticisms found in the everyday, and for capturing enigmatic contradictions to preserve the essence of transient occurrences. Her text- and image-based works can be found in several online and print publications, as well as in her digital and mail publications, which she sends out to subscribers on a monthly basis.
