Artist Talk with Roya Amigh

Thursday, April 15 at 1:45pm

Virtual Event

Please join the art department with for this artist talk with Roya Amigh. Roya explains: “My work narrates real events and their effects on women’s everyday lives from a third-person perspective. I integrate these collective memories with folktales and classic Iranian literature. Most of the classical literature, written by men, has Female subjugation and loss of self-determination, but the folktales, mostly narrated by women, have the liberation of sexuality. I use this gender differentiation, interlocked with the erotic desires and frustrations in response to social values, in my work narration.”
