Super Superficial: Solo Exhibition Featuring Kosar Movahedi

March 17 @ 11:00 am4:00 pm


Super Superficial is a solo exhibition by visual artist Kosar Movahedi that challenges the boundary between the exhibition space and image-based work.

Combining photography with drawing and collage, this body of work plays with the surface and frames of images. This makes for a dynamic experience where the viewers slip into the world of knowing and not knowing what they’re looking at, instead considering the process of viewing and making.

Opening night:
Friday March 8, 2024, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Gallery hours:

Continues every weekend from Saturday, March 9 until Sunday, March 24 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
