Looking back to the Goddess with Morehshin Allahyari in She Who Sees The Unknown at Upfor Gallery, Jun 1 – 24

, 30 May 2017

Morehshin Allahyari presents solo exhibition She Who Sees The Unknown at Portland’s Upfor Gallery opening June 1 to the 24.

The installation will include sculpture (3D printed), text, moving image as well as a research archive within the public reading room and will “re-figure dark goddesses from Middle Eastern mythology.” The New York-based artist is currently a Research Fellow at the Eyebeam Art and Technology Center.

The exhibition was first presented at New York’s Transfer Gallery, and is the result of two years of research into “the effects of digital colonialism and other forms of contemporary oppression,” placing her work between art and activism.
