An afternoon of talks to mark the exhibition 'On Violence and Beauty: Reflections on War' which features When I Count There Are Only You But When I Look There Is Only a Shadow of Farideh Lashai (1944-2013), a video installation after Goya’s Disasters of War and Lashai’s last work. Speakers will consider the importance of the Goya Disasters, why Lashai chose Goya for inspiration, how the work was made, the world she inhabited, and how Lashai’s work was received in the three museums it has been shown during 2016-2017: Sharjah Art Foundation, MSK Gent, and the Prado museum.
Speakers: Sussan Babaie, Antony Griffiths, Yashar Samimi Mofakham & Tarlan Rafie, Venetia Porter, Sheikha Hoor Al Qasimi, Catherine de Zegher and Ana Martinez de Aguilar. A film about Farideh Lashai by Kambiz Safari will be introduced by Maneli Kaykavoussi, Farideh’s daughter. A reception and private view of the exhibition follow the talks.
