Virtual Exhibiting Artist Talk with Gohar Dashti

August 12, 2020 4:00 pm

Gohar Dashti’s landscape photographs, currently on view in Complex Terrain(s), are a poetic exploration of the innate kinship between the natural world and our human experience. The landscape and natural environment is a key element in defining our concept of ‘home’. Gohar’s work seeks to connect her native Iran and her new American home through landscape imagery. Nature eschews arbitrary borders and is immune to cultural and political divisions, but as inhabitants, migrants, immigrants, we long to find familiar topographies in unfamiliar lands in an effort to reconstruct “home”.

Join us on Zoom for a live artist talk with Ms. Dashti, followed by Q&A.
