“Persian Calligraphy: case study”
August 10, 2019 - August 29, 2019
Persian Calligraphy Historical & Contemporary pop-up exhibit.
Today’s contemporary is tomorrow’s history. This exhibit will include a private artist talk and historical calligraphy demonstration by Kioumars Poorhaydari, to demonstrate the historical of Persian Calligraphy on Aug 10 (6:30-930pm). Kioumars Poorhaydari’s art can be viewed on Aug 9 & 10 only.
The art curator, Mariam Qureshi, has added a contemporary Arab female artist, Nada Hamatto’s art to compare. Nada has a modern way of incorporating calligraphy into her figurative paintings. The contrast between the past way of incorporating calligraphy into art is symbolic of contemporary emotion, life style changes and twists the rules of why calligraphy came into place. This exhibit is a case in study, by no means these are the only ways calligraphy is being interpreted in today’s age.
Hamatto’s art will be up until the end of August and the art works will be available for sale. Hamatto is a professional local artist specialing in Pop-Art.
