February 26, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

by Shahram Karimi, 2013, Italia, Iran, 2013, 21’
The Iranian artist Shahram Karimi has created this video during a 2 weeks workshop with 15 prisoners of the Maiano jail in Spoleto.
Karimi, filmmaker, painter, and poet, employs an evocation of nostalgia to explore the dilemma of a bicultural Iranian subject, wedding his personal memories with a contemporary form, composing in Farsi verse as completes his paintings. Karimi’s solo exhibitions include the Museum Sieburg, Germany (1998 and 2010) and Leo Castelli Gallery, New York (2008). He has participated in group exhibitions at Chelsea Museum of Art, New York (2009); the Iranian Cultural Center, Los Angeles (2003); and the Istanbul Biennial (2003). Karimi lives and works between the United States and Germany.
