  • How to Get from Minneapolis to Isfahan: Public Space and Public Poetry in the Bridges of Siah Armajani and the Pol-e Khvāju

    January 25, 2017, 4pm For the past forty years, the contemporary Iranian-American artist Siah Armajani has explored the imagery and iconography of bridges. Although his paintings, sculptures, and structures are inspired by the landscapes of the American Midwest, they have a surprising resonance with the communal uses of bridges in seventeenth-century Isfahan. On the occasion of an exhibition of Armajani’s work at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, this illustrated lecture will examine the shared conception of the bridge as a site of public gathering and poetry that spans the capital cities of Minnesota and Safavid Iran.
