Past Event Crossing the Red Line: Exhibiting Iranian Art in the US
Join us at City of Asylum for 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. She authored Picturing Iran: Art Society and Revolution and writes regularly for museums and art publications. 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 our Go West exhibition, 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.
This event is co-presented with City of Asylum, Pittsburgh.
