Sera Boeno is a sculptor and installation artist from Istanbul, Turkey. Her praxis is research based and influenced by the sociopolitics of her motherland, which she extrapolates to her current setting.

Boeno holds a B.A. from Dartmouth College with degrees in Neuroscience and Studio Art, and an M.F.A from Rinehart School of Sculpture at Maryland Institute College of Art with a focuses in curatorial practice, critical studies and art education. She is the recipient of several awards and grants including most recently the Hamiltonian Fellowship and the Amalie Rothschild '34 Rinehart Award for her work. Boeno has worked in various creative projects between Turkey, Japan and the United States. Currently, she is represented by Hamiltonian Gallery, DC and based in Baltimore, MD.
