A Global Destination for Art: Amir H. Fallah
Iranian-born artist Amir H. Fallah uses personal history as an entry point for discussions of race, the body, and the memories of cultures and countries left behind, while also interrogating systems of representation embedded in Western art. His newest body of work probes the history of portraiture, reimagining it as standing apart from the body altogether and offering a wider representation of personhood. Join the Fowler for an artist-led walk-through of his current exhibition at Shulamit Nazarian Los Angeles, followed by a conversation with Shiva Balaghi, Ph.D.
Shiva Balaghi, Ph.D., is a cultural historian who specializes in the arts of the Middle East and its diasporic communities. For nearly two decades, she taught History and Art History at NYU and Brown University. She is currently Senior Advisor to the President and Provost of the American University in Cairo on Arts and Cultural Programs.
A Global Destination for Art: Artists from all over the world flock to work in Los Angeles, drawn by the energy of ingenuity and the space for experimental expression. Join us on Zoom as we visit with international artists creating in our City of Angels.
