RAMIN HAERIZADEHIn the Fields of Empty Days: The Intersection of Past and Present in Iranian Art May 6, 2018
LACMA, Los Angeles
Curated by Linda Komaroff
6 May - 9 September
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents In the Fields of Empty Days: The Intersection of Past and Present in Iranian Art, a groundbreaking exhibition of both historical and contemporary Iranian works that highlight ways in which artists have used and continue to use the past as a metaphor for the present day. This notion is revealed in art and literature in which ancient kings and heroes are used in later contexts as examples of virtue or as objects of derision, while long-gone Shi'ite saints are evoked as champions of the poor and the oppressed. The exhibition examines this appropriation of the past, largely in the context of the present including a large scale concrete poetry by Ramin Haerizadeh based on two significant newspaper headline during the Iranian Revolution.

At Cains Brewery, they will create work on-site, using 'smuggled' objects shipped from Dubai to Liverpool by container.

Focus, Booth A16
Randall's Island Park, New York
5 - 8 May
We are pleased to announce our participation in Frieze New York with Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian, where the conquering folds of a new work imagined by the Iranian artist trio have transformed the New York Times-published Obama: The Historic Journey (2009) into a tale of our times. An onslaught of tropes sprung from globalized corporate visual culture, collaged onto the individually traced pages of the original book, cast a silhouetted Obama as the ultimate business manager. Strategies of concealing and revealing unfold across these pages, as the original images peer out from behind the masking of collaged imagery. The 27 drawings are excerpted moments from the wider sequence, freeze-framed and contemplated-a glimpse of the curtain being lifted on a largely unfathomable collaborative creation that ultimately seems to be the product of a sole hand.

Ramin Haerizadeh participates in Memory and Continuity, which features works from the Huma Kabakci Collection that Nahit Kabakci began to put together in the 1980s.

Preserved and upheld by two generations, the collection's affiliated and divergent points are brought to the fore in this exhibition.
