“features 6 commissioned essays by specialist curators, critics and admirers of Armajani’s work, highlighting various aspects of his career”

Released on the occasion of the exhibition Siah Armajani: An Ingenious World at Parasol unit, London, 18 September – 15 December 2013, this comprehensive publication of Armajani’s work presents never before published images and newly commissioned essays exploring the artist’s oeuvre.

The publication features 6 commissioned essays by specialist curators, critics and admirers of Armajani’s work, highlighting various aspects of his career. In her essay, Venetia Porter, Assistant Keeper of Islamic and Contemporary Middle Eastern Art at The British Museum, explores Armajani’s early Persian period in the context of his deep love of Iranian culture. While Dr. Ziba Ardalan, director and curator of Parasol unit, London, Janet Kardon, Valérie Mavridorakis and Patricia Phillips address such topics as Siah’s influences, political traditions and his capacity to navigate complex and expansive ideas through art, design, architecture, and the public realm. A reprinted article by Calvin Tomkins, art critic for The New Yorker, provides an overview of the renowned artist’s life and work, a fitting backdrop to this considerable publication.
