Ghazal Radpay: Intersections, Road Movie 7&8, Still Life

New show opening last weekend!

Ghazal Radpay | Azad Art Gallery, Nov. 20 – 25 / 29 Aban – 4 Azar |

Ghazal explores roots and rootlessness through her raw approach to art as she returns from Paris to her native Tehran. As part of this show, she provides a social commentary on Iran today by filming herself while writing her experiences and every-day perspectives on a board for all to see. As quickly as it is read it is erased, and the content was anything from major problems facing the poor or the youth of Iran to a solicitation for the adoption of her new batch of kittens.

We highly recommend this show!
