Body Double: The Safarani Sisters VIP Preview and Celebration
Wednesday, November 10, 2021
You’re invited to join President/CEO Dr. Cleveland Johnson, Board Treasurer Margie Wang, the Board of Trustees, and contemporary artists Bahareh and Farzaneh Safarani for the VIP Preview and Celebration of Body Double: The Safarani Sisters (November 12, 2021-April 24, 2022).
Identical twin Iranian sisters Bahareh and Farzaneh Safarani are interdisciplinary artists and collaborators whose practice exists at the nexus of visual art and performance. Comprised of new and existing work, this exhibition showcases their “video paintings”—several of which have found a home in our permanent collection—that explore the dual nature of the Sisters’ self-identity as individuals and twins, as Iranian and women, and as visual artists and performance artists. This will be the Safarani Sisters’ first solo museum show.
