Magali Duzant is an artist and writer whose practice is rooted in both research and process, using photography, writing, installations, and artist books to explore and communicate the ways in which we describe, inhabit, and share experiences on intimate scales both large and small. Her work has been widely exhibited, including at the Queens Museum (New York); Centre for Contemporary Photography (Melbourne, AU); UQO Gallery (Canada); the Hermitage Museum (St. Petersburg, Russia); the 2018 Mardin Biennial (Turkey); and the 2021 Singapore Art Week. Select commissions include site specific installations and public programming with Memorial Sloan Kettering, Supercollider, ABC No Rio, and Artists Alliance Inc. She has published three artist books with Conveyor Editions: I Looked & Looked (2015), Light Blue Desire: A Manual for the Color Blue (2018), and The Moon & Stars Can Be Yours: Notes on Subway Psychics (2019), and is currently working on her forthcoming book, A Tree Grows in Queens, which will be published in Fall 2022.
Duzant holds an MFA in Photography from Parsons School of Design and a BHA in
Fine Arts and Visual Culture from Carnegie Mellon University. She currently splits her time between New York and Zurich, Switzerland.
