Abbas Akhavan, in conversation with Zoé Whitley

Part of Alserkal Art Week

Starts 5:00 pm

Venue Warehouse 50, Project Space


Artist Abbas Akhavan, in conversation with Zoé Whitley, discusses his ongoing study in the space between hospitality and hostility. As we wander outside the home through domesticated and manicured landscapes, what does authenticity mean in a natural world of increasing artifice?

About speaker:

Abbas Akhavan is an artist whose work ranges from ephemeral installations to drawing, video, sculpture and performance. His research has been deeply influenced by sensitivity to the sites where he works: the architectures that house them, the economies that surround them, and the people that frequent them.
