VMG’s current exhibition “Art Happens Here” features several pieces from artist-activist, and DU alum, Morehshin Allahyari. In the project Material Speculation: ISIS (2015– 16), Allahyari created 3-D models of a set of twelve artifacts from the ancient cities of Hatra and Nineveh that were destroyed by ISIS in 2015.
Join us in VMG as Morehshine discusses her practice and current and upcoming projects.
Free and open to the public.
Light refreshments provided.
Allahyari is an artist, activist, writer, and educator. She was born and raised in Iran and moved to the United States in 2007. Her work deals with the political, social, and cultural contradictions we face every day. She thinks about technology as a philosophical toolset to reflect on objects and as a poetic means to document our personal and collective lives and struggles in the 21st century.
