Having works in the permanent collections of multiple major museums would satisfy Wikipedia's notability criteria for artists; however the provided source doesn't explicitly state that her works are permanently held by the AGO or the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art. It is also an interview, which isn't considered an independent source as it's the subject talking about herself; ideally this would be sourced to the museum's website or similar. Spicy talk 05:36, 9 December 2020 (UTC) Hoda Zarbaf was an Iranian-Canadian multimedia artist.[2] Born in Tehran, Zarbaf received her BFA in Painting, followed by an MFA with a focus on Animation form University of Tehran. She completed her second MFA in Digital Media from University of Windsor.[3] Over the span of her short-but-influential career, Zarbaf made four solo sculptural and multimedia series, while participating in curated group shows and exhibitions with site-specific video art and large-scale installations. In 2019, she was featured in 100 Sculptors of Tomorrow by Kurt Beers.[4] Through her practice, Zarbaf raised the notion of memory and absence. She collaged discarded, forgotten—and seemingly useless—domestic objects with newly sculpted ceramics, lights, sounds, videos, or patchwork elements, giving them a contemporary narrative. The uncanny and absurd characters of her pieces bear witness to human's overlapping-yet-common psychological states: vulnerability, desire, pain, nostalgia, and melancholy.[5] Over the years, these multimedia, whimsical sculptures have been exhibited in cities like Berlin, Hamburg, New York, Toronto, Tehran, New York and Vancouver; some have been showcased in museums like Toronto’s AGO and Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art. They are also reported on by the global press, including BBC, CBC, The Guardian, Hi-fructose Magazine and Voice of America. [6] Zarbaf lived and worked between Tehran and Toronto. On November 29th, 2020 she passed away quietly at her home in Tehran nine days after her final show, titled Honey, I am home![7]
