Satpreet Kahlon


Satpreet Kahlon is a multidisciplinary artist who is based in Seattle, WA + Providence, RI. Born in Punjab, India and raised in the Midwest, she is interested in creating visual language and immersive encounters that express and explore intersectional experiences as well as the structural systems of inequity that dictate their boundaries. Her most recent shows can be seen at The Wing Luke Museum in Seattle, WA, and Sarah Doyle Gallery at Brown University in Providence, RI.

In addition to her studio practice, which has been pictured in Artforum, Satpreet is the founder of Deep Space Gallery, and, between 2015 and 2017, she designed and taught youth programming in partnership with the Seattle Art Museum. She is currently co-curating yəhaw̓, a multi-city, yearlong project based in the Pacific Northwest that will feature work of over 200 Indigenous artists in 20 partner sites.

Satpreet is a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, where she received a full-fellowship to pursue her MFA in Sculpture.
