Tannaz Farsi: Crowd Control
January 26-March 22, 2013

Artist Lecture: Lenzner Family Art Gallery, Pitzer College Art Galleries

Tannaz Farsi’s work examines the activity surrounding cultural uprisings and uses liminal moments in our current landscape of events that can speak to individual agency. Farsi’s sources range from the language of advertising to mass-produced, pedestrian objects, such as fluorescent light bulbs, cinder blocks, megaphones and roses, which evoke political protests as well as the globalized economy.

The work shown in Lenzner Family Art Gallery will explore language and objects that highlight political divisions by transforming recognizable forms to manifest the perceptual and emotional aspects associated with the visual vocabulary of conflict. By translating material from our contemporary cultural archive, Farsi’s practice is invested in producing speculative realities that allow for subjective intervention.
