Southern Exposure: Between Lands group exhibition (opening reception)

May 14 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Between Lands
May 14 – June 18, 2022
Curated by Minoosh Zomorodinia

Between Lands features the work of ten Iranian and US-based artists who offer new perspectives on the notion of place and examine our relationships to landscape through the lens of personal and collective histories. The artists chosen for this show consider our attachments and anxieties in relationship to land and home when there is a loss caused by war, fire, displacement, or other disaster. How does eco-anxiety or displacement shift perceptions of our own place in the world? How do technology and virtual space impact our perceptions of place? For many living in the US, particularly immigrants from Iran, the American political landscape has made it challenging to both visit one’s family and created an amplified sense of alienation from one’s chosen home. Having left unlivable places, the artists in Between Lands live in an uncertain, liminal space between countries. Between Lands considers the fraught relationships many of us have to place and home at a moment when politics and climate change are shifting the ground that we stand on.

Between Lands is curated by Minoosh Zomorodinia and includes work by Annie Albagli, Samira Davarfara, Emsaki S., Raheleh Filsoofi, Tara Goudarzi, Anahita Hekmat Atefeh Khas, and Kalaktive (Bahareh Khoshooee & Sareh Imani).

Between Lands Opening Reception Featuring Bite: A Virtual Performance by Raheleh Filsoofi

Join us on Saturday, May 14 to celebrate the opening of our next exhibition, Between Lands, curated by Minoosh Zomorodinia. The event is free and open to the public, and will feature a virtual performance, Bite, by Raheleh Filsoofi screened in the gallery and viewable at home at 5:30 PM. RSVP here.

Bite is the live creation of a repetitive, decorative pattern as the artist sinks her teeth into the clay in an act of defiance and affirmation.
