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.
