This is the inaugural event of a new lecture series co-organised by IHF and the Courtauld.
Reza Aramesh: 12 noon, Monday 5 August 1963 at the Asia Society in New York is Reza Aramesh’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States (on until 9th June 2019). He has been exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions, most recently at Met Breuer in New York (2018), SCAD Museum in Georgia Atlanta (2018), Akademie der Kunst Berlin (2016), the 2015 Venice Biennale, Art Basel Parcours 2017, Frieze Sculpture Park 2015 and 2017, and at Maxxi Museum in Rome (2016). He has orchestrated a number of performances and exhibitions in such spaces as the Barbican Centre, Tate Britain, and ICA, London. His works have entered public and private collections worldwide including in Argentina, Germany, Lithuania, Poland, USA, France, and Lebanon.
Reza Aramesh was born in Iran and has been living in London since his teenage years. He holds a Masters in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths University, London (1997). Working in photography, sculpture, video and performance, Aramesh’s profound understanding of the history of art, film and literature is ever present in his artwork. As a response to war reportage images from sources such as newspapers, online articles and social media, he de-contextualises scenes of historical and contemporary moments, exploring the narrative between the representation of subjected body, mythologizing history as well as beauty in iconography.
