Crossing the Red Line: Exhibiting Iranian Art in the U.S. (Iran/U.S.)
Saturday, October 21 at 2:00 pm
Spend an afternoon with Dr. Shiva Balaghi, an independent scholar and curator based in Los Angeles. For nearly two decades, Dr. Balaghi taught cultural history at NYU and Brown University. Most recently she has contributed to the catalogue for Farhad Moshiri: Go West, the first museum solo for one of Iran’s most prominent artists. In conjunction with the Go West exhibition at The Warhol, Balaghi will discuss Moshiri’s artwork and extend her discussion into what it means to exhibit, write about, critique, and view contemporary Iranian art at museums in the United States.
