The Memories Between, Women of Nobility by Afarin Rahmanifar
Friday, October 20, 6:00 pm
Afarinâs work reveals iconic female characters that have ties to both Eastern and Western cultures. She tells the stories of women and explores what it means to grow up in hybrid cultures. She deconstructs female figures in patterns, textures, and architectural elements using gold leaf, red sewing machine thread and animation to create layers. Special thanks to the Edward C. & Ann T. Roberts Foundation for its support of our 2017-2018 ArtWalk season.
