The Journey (سفر)

With Keyvan Shovir

March 2021- March 2022

Asian Art Museum

The Journey (سفر) is inspired by “The Conference of Birds” (“Mantegh o Teir”), a Persian poem by 12th-century Iranian Sufi poet Farid ud-Din Attar, also known as Attar Neyshaburi. In the poem, a hoopoe, a bird common in Africa, Asia, and Europe, leads the other birds on a journey to find the truth of life from Simurgh, a mythical bird in Iranian mythology and literature. At the end of the journey, the birds discover that the truth they were looking for is within themselves, and together, they are the Simurgh.

Bangkit Sama-Sama/ Together We Rise is about the power of resilience and the belief that it is possible to rise together as a critical mass to create a world rooted in compassion, justice, and equity. Whether through deep reflection, social/political commentary, direct action, storytelling, beauty, or humor; these are all strategies for working collectively to heal.

Project 13

What we can ascertain is how our being can retain all the old information and create a new solution in a new way of existence. We experience life in different states that evolve and resonate with our purpose and intentions through struggling, conflict, merging past and present, stillness, absence, survival, and desire to go forward.

Project 13 is pleased to present multidisciplinary works by thirteen Iranian artists in "Walking," a virtual exhibition exploring encounters in time and space.

Artists: Shaghayegh Cyrous, Hamed Jaberha, Pantea Karimi, Mobina Nouri, Mehregan Pezeshki, Reza Reza, Rojin Shafiei, Azarakhsh Shafieikadkani, BSisters, Shima Taj Bakhsh, Shirin Towfiq, Arezu Zargar, Minoosh Zomorodinia

Stories & Solidarity: International Women's Day Symposium

March 3, 2021

by Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery

What does International Women’s Day mean today? What can it encompass and what does it exclude?

In recognition of this day, the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery at the University of Western Australia and the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco present a two-part event celebrating the work of women and non-binary creatives.

Drawing upon the strengths of the organisations' collections, the symposium brings together practitioners from across the current exhibitions: After Hope: Videos of Resistance at the Asian Art Museum and, at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, Paper CutCreatures: Ochred, Pokered, Carved and Twined and Olga Cironis: Dislocation. The two events will be recorded and combined together to be presented online at a later date.

Part one of the symposium, at the University of Western Australia, brings together Australian and international artists to explore contemporary art, activism and the power of stories.

1:00pm-2.15pm: Panel 1: Power of Storytelling with moderator Linda Iriza and panelists Emele Ugavule, Shaghayegh Cyrous and Teelah George


13 December 2020-13 January 2021
