Artist and photographer to know: Farhad Bahram

https://iranwire.com/en/features/4653

As an artist and photographer, Farhad Bahram is interested in challenges: What does it mean to be from a particular place, from a particular background?  What do labels mean, and what happens if we ignore them, or tear them down? What does it mean to be a performer, and a member of an audience or an observer? What if the line between them is blurred?

This approach to his work was shaped by a number of factors: Bahram’s childhood in Iran, his move to the United States, and his experiences as an immigrant, and before that, as a photojournalist.

“After my camera equipment was confiscated by the cops in the street, I started to realize that my camera is not only a professional device for the documentation of people’s life,” he says of this evolution. Suddenly, he says, he saw that a camera “could be a simple tool for initiating an active dialogue among people.” In 2009, Bahram covered the unrest following the disputed presidential election. It led him to set up the collaborative group the Global Mission of Art (GMOA) later the same year. Promoting “a free platform for creative communication and cultural activities,” more than 30 artists around the world ran exhibitions, published books, and organized conferences and training workshops. “Most importantly, we decided to allocate all the funds raised through these events to non-profit organizations and humanitarian movements such as the society for supporting children suffering from cancer (Mahak) and UNICEF. For our most recent project, we worked with The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).”

Before coming to the US at the age of 29, Bahram worked as a photojournalist for two magazines and Hamshahri Newspaper. He traveled around Iran, including to the provinces of Sistan and Baluchistan in the southeast, Khuzestan in the southwest and Mazandaran near the Caspian Sea in the north, among others, documenting diversity and the lives of people around the country. This experience led him to think about tools of communication, and how people respond when they are limited or threatened. “As we know, a totalitarian state always tries to subjugate its people by controlling various aspects of their life including social communication. However, this limitation showed me how I could go beyond the traditional ways of communication such as language.” In Iran, he recognized, anybody with what he calls a “fluid social identity” can be at risk because they do not conform to the fixed rules of that society. So it was natural at this time that he began to see the value of looking at his creative practice through a social lens, and to consider how public interaction and participation can feed into art. Some of his public performances, such as One Minute Engagement with an Iranian (2015-2016) and Re-identification (2014), are the products of those revelations and considerations.Pushing back on these norms and trying to carve out a space for individuality and creativity is, Bahram says, “the story of any active artist in Iran.”

Bahram left Iran in 2011 to pursue a graduate degree in art at San Francisco Art Institute. Prior to this, he received a Bachelor’s degree in mining and rock engineering from the Azad University of Southern Tehran in 2007 and served his mandatory army service. After completing a graduate degree in Fine Arts at the University of Oregon, he completed a Graduate Certificate in New Media and Culture, also at the University Oregon. He was awarded the OUS-Sasakawa Young Leaders Fellowship Fund (Sylff) graduate fellowship for International Research in 2013, which recognizes individuals from a range of disciplines whose work focuses on overcoming “cultural boundaries to address global issues.” He was also given the Carlene Ho Award for Excellence in the Arts in 2013. Since 2015 has been teaching at the University of Oregon’s College of Art and Design. He lives in Eugene with his wife Pooyesh, a therapist.

His work has been exhibited internationally in more than 30 shows and exhibitions, including at galleries in Brooklyn, Paris, San Francisco and other cities in California, across Oregon, and in Finland and India. He has had two exhibitions in Tehran, at Fravahr Art Gallery and the Sazmanab Center for Contemporary Art.

 

Balancing Acts 

Like many Iranian-Americans who have emigrated to the US over the last two decades, Bahram’s childhood memories are shaped by the horrors of the Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988). But he has fond memories of family life, especially of his grandfather, a professor of theology and philosophy of religion. “His charismatic character was always the source of inspiration for the whole family,” he says. His family still live in Tehran, where his mother is a housewife and his father, a traditional businessman with a good education, works alongside Behram’s younger brother at Tehran’s Grand Bazaar.

Bahram hasn’t been back to Iran since he left, but his work continues to be shaped by Iran, and by what he calls its deep-rooted “social mistrust.” Culturally, he says, Iranians tend to conceal “their daily life, including their wealth or possessions — and even their thoughts and emotions — from the political state.” And it’s not only about the current regime. It goes back to a history of “authoritarian crowns and turbans,” and is undoubtedly embedded in the Persian language.

But this doesn’t mean that people are silent. Iranian citizens — and artists and journalists in particular — have to find ways to say what they want to say without getting into trouble. And Bahram believes the Persian language, which is “full of idioms and metaphors that serve as an envelope to wrap the intentions and implications of our daily interactions,” has evolved to deal with this balancing act of concealment and expression.

And even as these restrictions seem to dominate Iranian expression, they have also done something quite unexpected: They have preserved a set of “unique social interactions,” a set of characteristics that set Iranian people apart. This, he says, is of enormous value to journalists and anyone trying to document the lives of Iranians. “If you want to make a genuine story about people, you must learn how to engage them in a context that give you access to the preserved stories of their life.”

So, for him, what’s it like to be an Iranian-American today? Bahram says his Looking Glass installation, part of Eugene’s Platform Festival, is a partial attempt to answer this.

He and artist Tom Lundberg asked 15 Iranians living in Eugene to send them a list of words in Persian that represent their individual identity. They then printed the words on black vinyl and pasted them on the ground at the entrance of the exhibition space. During the two-hour show, the 15 participants (including Bahram) positioned themselves inside the displayed text and didn’t move. People attending the exhibition were immediately confronted with a series of questions and considerations about national, ethnic, sexual, and religious identities and what it means to belong. “The audience who wanted to enter the space had to find their way in by passing through this space/text populated by the Iranians,” Bahram says.

“To me, an artist is not only a creative creator but also a facilitator or curator that invites the audience into the process of constructing the art piece,” he says. “In this context, the viewer and their interactions may actually become the artwork itself. This is the most exciting part of art practice for me.”

Hua Tunan – World Famous Chinese Street Artist – Eugene, Oregon

World Famous Street Artist Comes to Eugene
One of the most sought-after Chinese street artists is working in Eugene this week as part of the 20×21 EUG Mural Project. Hua Tunan was born in 1991 in Foshan, Guangdong province. His street art style combines traditional Chinese art with Western graffiti through the use of action and splatter painting to create bold compositions of animals. Images of Hua’s past work can be seen at http://huatunan.tumblr.com/.
Hua’s Eugene mural is made possible in part by partnership with Vistra at 411 West 4th Avenue, Eugene, where he is painting the exterior wall through June 23rd. Hua’s piece will be the fourth mural in the 20x21EUG Mural Project. 20×21 is an initiative of the City of Eugene’s Public Art Program to create 20 world-class murals in our community by 2021.
Also, this summer from July 29 – August 4, seven international and local street artists will create mural magic in the city during Eugene Walls.

Alverson wanted to see familiar landscapes from a different perspective, to expand the time scale, since different elements of the landscape operate on

different time scales. He took weekly photos of a dozen or more scenes of a particular site for an entire year, choosing a different site each year over ten years. His presentation of landscape changes at the rate of two seconds a week can change our conception of the passage of time.

Opening May 20 | Dannielle Tegeder: TURBULENT CONSTELLATIONS

Carrie Secrist Gallery is happy to announce our first solo exhibition with gallery artist Dannielle Tegeder:
Dannielle Tegeder | TURBULENT CONSTELLATIONS
Opening reception: Saturday, May 20 from 5 to 8 PM
Exhibition dates:
May 20 – July 1, 2017 
Dannielle Tegeder’s newest body of work expands on her ever-evolving exploration of the systems that surround us. This exhibition presents a monumental mobile, an installation of over 70 works on paper, a series of large-scale drawings, video animations and sound. As a full body of work, oriented within the gallery space to encourage exploration and interpretation, the integration of formal concepts such as architecture and urban planning manifest through abstraction.
Encompassing the language of painting in the expanded field, Dannielle Tegeder’s artwork reconstitutes what painting means as a formal exercise in mark making by allocating particular strategies to the medium of drawing. The notion of “Drawing” then becomes delineated by introducing installation methods that further disrupt media-specific hierarchies: drawing to sculpture to installation to video to sound and back to drawing. Expanding and contracting these constructs, with the idea of drawing as a baseline, emboldens the interconnectedness between line, shape and color. Thus: drawing as sculpture as installation as video as sound.
SPECIAL EVENT
Matthew Evan Taylor
Saturday, June 24, 2017 at 4PM at Carrie Secrist Gallery
Composer and saxophonist Matthew Evan Taylor will present a site-specific performance in collaboration with Dannielle Tegeder on the occasion of TURBULENT CONSTELLATIONS. Taylor and Tegeder will also talk about their ongoing collaboration, this project and the history of sound and abstraction.
 
This event will be free and open to the public.

Associate Professor of Art Ron Jude will launch a new book entitled “Nausea” in London on May 19th.

Associate Professor of Art Ron Jude will launch a new book entitled “Nausea”
in London on May 19th. He will be signing books in the bookshop at The
Photographers’ Gallery at 5:00 pm, followed by a conversation with curator
and writer David Chandler at 6:30 pm. “Nausea” is Jude’s third book with
London-based publisher MACK.
“Nausea”—taken from the title of Sartre’s 1938 existential novel—is a
body of photographs that registers the interiors of public schools in Baton
Rouge, Louisiana and Atlanta, Georgia. Departing from mere documentation,
however, Ron Jude lures us into peering through windows, doorways and
crevices of walls into empty classrooms and corridors, as we become
increasingly conscious of the perils of our own gaze.
David Chandler is a writer, editor and curator in the fields of contemporary
photography, photographic history and the visual arts and is currently
Professor of Photography at the School of Art, Design and Architecture,
Plymouth University. He was curator at The Photographers’ Gallery from 1988
to 1995.
The Book Signing is free, the talk requires booking. £8/£5 Members &
Concessions.
The Photographers’ Gallery, 16 – 18 Ramillies St, London W1F 7LW
+44 (020) 7087 9300
There will be two additional book signings with Ron Jude on Saturday, May
20th at Photo London and Offprint London.

PDX Summer 2017 Art Therapy Courses

Creative, hands-on professional development courses in cooperation with PSU for educators, counselors, therapists and students.

Hello Everyone!

Spring has sprung in my corner of Sweden and I hope it has in your world too!

The daffodils are fading as the tulips rise and trumpet their brilliant petals. Our 4 week old chicks are plump and the local wild hares are as prolific as ever. That’s life on a Swedish farm!

Believe it or not… the summer is not so far away. I’m looking forward to flying into Portland to teach three workshop courses in cooperation with Portland State University. It would be lovely if you could join us.

But first…. just a quick update on my recent activities –

On Tuesday April 25th I returned home from five days in Bulgaria where I taught 40-plus students two of the PDX summer course offerings for the Arts and Therapy Institute of Sofia.

The first course was the Healing Children through Creativity Workshop and the second was the Healing Trauma through Creativity Workshop. An honor to work with an amazing group of people dedicated to helping children and adults in Bulgaria. Check out the pictures above and below for a peek at some of our creative processes.

Next item…

Announcing our Summer 2017 Workshops:

  • New course!Exploring Jungian Archetypes: An Art Therapy Workshop for Counselors and Therapists, July 24 and 25, 2017.
  • Healing Children through Creativity: Art Therapy Training Workshop, July 26 and 27, 2017
  • Healing Trauma through Creativity Workshop, July 31 and August 1, 2017.

You are welcome to register for the Early-bird tuition now!

Opening Reception | Friday, May 5, 6 – 8:00 P.M.

We have found ourselves facing a sobering reality of the fragile and
threatened support for the arts. As institutional directions are frequently
changing and budgets continually diminished, the very foundations of creative
venues and organizations have become easy prey. Institutional, community and
civic priorities are expressed – or dismissed – through financial
referendums. Currently, this is a global, national, and ultimately local
truth.
Functionally United will serve as the final curated exhibition for White Box.
On July 1, following the University of Oregon Art and Technology graduating
exhibition the doors will close for the last time. An important and
influential chapter for the Northwest’s arts community will officially come
to an end.
This final line-up of exhibiting artists is a testament to the impact, depth,
and reach White Box has had locally, across Oregon, and nationally. This is
not an exhibition where the spacious, room-to-breath aesthetic of displaying
work will be implemented, but rather will be a wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling
collection of incredible talent. A group that formed out of solidarity for
one of Portland’s iconic art venues, many have previously exhibited in the
gallery and all have experienced, influenced and provoked White Box in some
degree.
White Box at the University of Oregon in Portland has served as a visual
laboratory invested in the exploration and presentation of contemporary
critical inquiry in the visual arts since 2010. Located in the historic White
Stag Block in Portland’s Old Town Chinatown neighborhood, White Box has a
vibrant history of bringing together artists, students, faculty, and regional
and global communities to research and present contemporary issues in art and
design. This history and collection of exhibitions cannot be properly
represented in a statement. But, I am hopeful it will serve as a symbol of
White Box continuing to fuel individual artists as well as Oregon’s
artistic, social and civic communities long after the lights are off.
Please join us in saying farewell.

Amanda Wojick
Cutouts and Collage

Paintings and Sculpture


Amanda Wojick is an artist based in Eugene, Oregon who creates inventive, brightly colored artworks that accentuate the handmade process. Cutouts and Collage features new sculptures and paintings that highlight Wojick’s idiosyncratic artmaking practice and dynamic visual vocabulary.

Wojick’s work merges highly personal and symbolic traces from the cultural space of the home, with imperfect geometry and wobbly patterns. Her latest creations are inspired by small freehand paper cutouts and other everyday materials found within the space that she lives. Using layers of unexpected texture, vibrant colors, and surprising arrangements, she creates unique hybrids that intermingle elements of painting, sculpture, and collage.

The exhibition features multicolored standing sculptures, stacked wooden wall pieces, and intimately-sized paintings flecked with gold, gingham fabric or painted polka dots. Every one of Wojick’s imaginative new artworks are enlivened by her inventive use of surface, scale and materiality.

Amanda Wojick received a MFA from Bard College and from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, and a BA from Colgate University. She has had recent exhibitions at Stene Projects (Stockholm, Sweden), Ucross Art Gallery (Sheridan, WY), Disjecta, (Portland, OR), and the The Art Gym, (Marylhurst, OR). Past exhibitions include Gridspace, (Brooklyn, NY), Buffalo Arts Studio (Buffalo, NY), Portland Art Museum (Portland, OR), Tacoma Art Museum (Tacoma, WA), Susan Hobbs Gallery, (Toronto, Canada), Whatcom Museum (Bellingham, WA), Jordan Schnitzer Museum at the University of Oregon (Eugene, OR), and Sun Valley Center for the Arts (Ketchum, ID) among others. Her work is included in the permanent collection of Portland Art Museum, Tacoma Art Museum and many private collections.
