Sharhzad Amin: Opening Reception

Riverdale Galleries will be showcasing the works of Shahrzad Amin, with an opening reception and artist talk on November 24th. Stay tuned to our Instagram for more details!

Multidisciplinary artist Shahrzad Amin is interested in fundamental social issues such as democracy, equality, migration and human rights. The latter scopes inform her art practice that examines diasporic and socio-cultural subjectivities. Through an ethnographic lens, the artist’s sensory filmmaking, architectural design, language and visual art practices are molded. Shahrzad Amin’s artworks highlight the necessity of global connectivity, and a social openness through the element of arch bridges; these eastern architectural features stand as place-making symbols when overcoming cultural distances.

The exhibition leads the viewer’s attention to multiple layers of memory, dreams and time leveraged in the collection through Persian calligraphy, pattern-making, collage and painting. The research that informs these artworks presents a connection between both contemporary and traditional Iranian culture. Despite the political barriers, Shahrzad Amin’s practice connects various aspects of Iranian people’s lives to a global conversation.

Amin obtained a BFA from Tehran University of Art in 2010 and an MFA from OCADU in 2020. Her artwork has been exhibited in Tehran, Florence, Los Angeles, San Diego, New York, as well as nationwide exhibits in Canada.
