Taraneh Hemami: Common Space

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Common Space
Taraneh Hemami’s architectural sculptures become platforms for interaction and engagement, personal reflections, and public action. Common Space gives an overview of a few recent projects, from a pop up bazaar where artists engaged with Iranian political, cultural, and historical moments to create products that entice exchange, conversations, and research in Fabrications, to an Islamic prayer wall inside a church created as a stage for religious rituals and curated performances in Reverberations of Stone.
Hemami explores themes of displacement, preservation, and representation, working with materials of history, organizing images, and data into timelines, patterns, and maps that draw connections between contradictory narratives. Her installations intermingle with the architecture of the spaces they occupy, complicating their identity and altering their function. Her recent projects highlight the collective struggle within Iran and its Diaspora, investigating the universal connections between radical movements across times and geographies. She has received awards from the Creative Capital, Creative Work Fund, Center for Cultural Innovation, and the California Council for the Humanities. Her works have been exhibited widely including at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Southern Exposure, Victoria and Albert Museum, Boghossian Foundation, and at the Sharjah International Biennial.
