Rose Art Museum - Parallel Lives: Women of the Iranian Diaspora

Event Date: 
Wednesday, September 27, 2023 - 7:00pm

Artist Arghavan Khosravi has stated, “I occupy an in-between space, familiar to many immigrants.” As an Iranian artist living in America, her work reflects her lived experience,   dwelling within a rich liminal space between identities. This cultural hybridity provides a  nuanced perspective, which serves the creative process and allows for new spaces of belonging.

Join Khosravi and acclaimed author Marjan Kamali for an exploration of the Iranian diaspora through visual and narrative storytelling. Moderated by Shahla Haeri, Professor of Anthropology at Boston University, this virtual conversation will investigate the dual consciousness experienced by Iranian immigrant women and how their work shifts cultural dynamics of power and privilege.

This program will have automated captions and is hosted via Zoom webinar. Registration is required.
