Taraneh Hemami and Guests

SEE EVENT DETAILS
YBCA:ConVerge celebrates Taraneh Hemami's public work, Free, which has spanned the large windows facing the Yerba Buena Gardens for the past two years, with an event to mark its closing.

Central to Free, which takes its inspiration from the 2011 Arab Spring movement, is a neon sign that repeats the word in English, completing its one minute circular motion repeatedly, while the Arabic word Hurr, nestled inside, has remained lit for the duration of the two year installation, invoking peace and freedom across geographies.
