"Her art is a form of serious play that demonstrates the value of injecting creative thinking into the the bloodstream of workaday culture. She introduces a trickster-like humor into public spaces and discourses, and yet it is a humor edged with political potency." — Anya Ventura, MIT Center for Art, Science, & Technology

An artist of Chinese and Ecuadorian descent, Marisa Morán Jahn works at the intersection of inequality and access, positioning culture as an essential tool for public engagement and social impact.

She has been a Visiting Artist at MIT's Media Lab since 2007, has been a CEC Cultural Ambassador to Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Estonia, Russia, and Russia, and is currently a Research Affiliate at MIT Open Doc Lab. As the Founder of Studio REV- and former Executive Director of People's Production House, Jahn has created media production courses where thousands of low-wage workers, immigrants, women, and teens around the world broadcast their unique perspectives to the broader public through media outlets such as PBS Newshour, NPR, and WNYC and museums such as Museum of Modern Art, the New York Hall of Science, The New Museum, and more.

Jahn has presented and exhibited work at The White House, Museum of Modern Art, IDEO NY, Lincoln Center, the Walker Art Center, MIT Museum, The Power Plant (Toronto), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the San Francisco Asian Art Museum, ICA Philadelphia, Asian Art Museum, and others.
