Forrest Lesch-Middelton, Arash Shirinbab, Nooshin Hakim Javadi, Pedram Baldari “The Earth is Whole”

Redepenning Gallery

March 28-May 11, 2019

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 28, 6-8pm

The Earth is Broken, the Earth is Whole is a dialogue between four artists: Forrest Lesch-Middelton, Arash Shirinbab, Pedram Baldari and Nooshin Hakim Javadi. This exhibition will feature ceramics, calligraphy, media, food, performance and installations that explore cultural and political exchanges between Middle Eastern and Western interpretations of our cultures. This exhibition asks challenging questions, like, do we accept or reject the concept of globalization and migration? How do we embrace what is happening and what is to come? Can it really be as simple as sitting down together? Can something as commonplace as clay, a mineral ubiquitous to all cultures, transcend borders and become a catalyst for addressing such complex issues?
