Polina Isurin is a two-time immigrant who has exhibited domestically and abroad. Originally from Leningrad (St. Petersburg), Russia, she lived in Israel before coming to the United States with her parents. Her cross-cultural and bilingual upbringing undeniably influences her art practice. Additionally, she has been teaching visual arts to both middle, high school, and college level students since 2012. Her interdisciplinary art practice explores how the sites and remnants of memories structure our culture, society, and our own identity.
