Dear friends,

I am thrilled to announce the opening of Out of Sight, Beyond touch at the Center for Book Arts in New York City where I participate along with Amina Ahmed, Bahman Mohammadi and Masoumeh Mohtadi.

Curated by Maryam Ghoreishi, the exhibition not only investigates the sense of sight, but also of touch. Through the artworks, each of these senses— either acting alone or working together— reminds the visitor of the vital role of discovery and understanding that sight and touch play together in determining tactile sensations. Visitors’ interactions with each artwork imply the concept of mystery via confrontations with unfamiliar objects or situations. While some works are covered and may only be touched, some can only be viewed, not touched: each concealing a different approach, resulting in the process of discovery. Out of Sight, Beyond Touch is also designed with a reading section containing multiple books in English, Farsi, and Spanish, with a sculpture by Ramyar Vala. These books have been used either by the artists in the exhibition as conceptual sources or by the curator in her research, thus revealing the research and construction process.

It would be a pleasure if you could join us.
