Efrat Hakimi is a multidisciplinary artist based in Chicago and working with printmaking, photography, video, and installation. Forging original and critical views of political issues in various cultural contexts, she employs inventive methods to erode cultural foundations such as faith, radical religiousness, gender, geographical tension, and the forces that shape them.
Born in Tel Aviv in 1982, Hakimi studied mechanical engineering and visual art in Israel before earning her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she is now a lecturer in the Printmedia Department. Hakimi has had solo exhibitions at Roots & Culture, Chicago; Hayarkon 19 Gallery, Tel Aviv; Mana Contemporary, Chicago; 062 Gallery, Chicago; and Rosenfeld Gallery, Tel Aviv.
