HOMA TAJ NASAB is an artist, filmmaker & museologist. She is the founder of MUSEUMVIEWS, est. 2003;  International Museum Workers Day (IMWD), est. 2015; and, Global Sports Heritage Association (GSHA / GSHAtv), est. 2020.

For three decades, HOMA’s interests in the arts have spanned the worlds of theater, dance, film and visual arts.

Daughter of a self-taught painter, Homa began painting in high school in the late 1980’s. Her first brush with performance arts also came during high school, on Long Island NY, when she briefly studied with the legendary American dancer & choreographer Jacques D’Amboise, a principal dancer of the New York City Ballet.

During the 1990’s, Homa studied at the prestigious Stella Adler Conservatory (1989-1991), and worked as a production assistant on a number of independent film and theatre projects, in New York City & Boston. Later in the decade, she pursued film and video production when she made a number of short films – including Waiting For Van Gogh and an experimental animation film based on Pablo Picasso’s Blue Period masterpiece Seated Nude Back (1902).

To date, Homa has made nine experimental short films. Firmly believing in the myriad arts that comprise the art of cinema, Homa expands her cinematic practice to include mixed media, installation, video and computer arts.

Starting in 2013, Homa returned to her roots as a visual artist, on a full-time basis, making mixed media conceptual and video art with focus on cinema, as well as her experiences of living through a revolution, a war and mass migration. 

Homa holds post-graduate degrees in history of collecting and museology (Harvard University); 19th-20th  century fine arts and their institutional histories (The Courtauld Institute); and, histories of museums & collecting (University of Oxford). She also wrote her unpublished doctoral dissertation on the comparative history of museums in emerging markets, c 1870′s-1940′s, at the University of Oxford, UK.
