Hamilton Artists Inc-Fast Forward/Present Tense

Soheila Esfahani, Fatima Garzan, Farhang Jalali

Three contemporary artists who explore cultural translation within the context of Western society.  Soheila K. Esfahani, Fatima Garzan, and Farhang Jalali investigate the processes involved in cultural transfer and transformation.  three bring the rich artistic and cultural heritage of Iran and place it in a Canadian context; but each does so in his/her own way.  As artists, Esfahani, Garzan and Jalali have each looked for, and found, a way to meld their past and present lives, while creating works that speak to us with voices that are universal.

On going to May4/12 is Two Tales of a City-Broken Lab Residency

The fabric banner installed along the side of HAI’s new building will feature a rotating series of call-and-response dualities over a six week period, while the oversized bunting will span 135 feet hung across the roofline and act as a timeline of collapsed and thriving industries, experiences, struggles, and victories of the city.
