The details… “Fahimeh Vahdat: Dreaming of a Free Iran,” On view through February 12

Artist Statement: Growing up in the Iranian culture and with its long period of censorship, I have learned to speak through the language of metaphors. Currently the metaphor speaks through the layers of canvas and fabrics in multitude of traditional and non-traditional ways. My work confronts female oppression, violence, and human rights abuses especially in Iran. As an Iranian-American Baha’i woman and artist living in exile, my work also addresses the experience of “in-betweenness” of living a dual life, as the two merge and separate.
