Asma Kazmi received a B.F.A. from the Massachusetts College of Art and an M.F.A. from the School of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She approaches her practice from a post installation/object centric position, which allows her to create multidimensional works where people, media and objects come together.

Her work has been exhibited and included in collections such as the Contemporary Art Museum in St. Louis; Webster University; Boots Contemporary Art Space, St Louis; The Guild Gallery, NYC; Galerie Sans Titre, Brussels, Belgium; Gallery 400, University of Illinois in Chicago; Boston Underground Film Festival; Balagan Film and Video Series, Boston; Women In Film & Video/New England; and the MassArt Film Society.
