Mitra Tabrizian in conversation with Parveen Adams
Date: Friday 16 November 2018
Venue: AA Lecture Hall
Mitra Tabrizian’s photographic and film work is concerned with what we might call ‘the crisis of contemporary culture’ in both East and West. Born in Iran and educated in England, her journeys back and forth have allowed her to observe both cultures from an insider’s as well as outsider’s point of view. This has given her both a sense of engagement in and a sense of detachment from both cultures. Such a position allows her a detailed appreciation of the role of narrative and fantasy in cultural processes.
Mitra Tabrizian is an Iranian-British award-winning artist and filmmaker. Her photographic work has been exhibited and published and is represented in major international museums and public collections. Solo museum shows include Tate Britain, 2008. Her critically acclaimed debut feature Gholam was released in the UK in 2018 and distributed worldwide.
All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
