Shagha Ariannia: Who Sings the Nation-State?

March 18, 2017 - June 24, 2017

Exploring questions of citizenship, national belonging, and the fantasy of immigration through drawings, paintings and a video installation, itself part performance and part storytelling, this exhibition borrows its title from the book by cultural critics Judith Butler and Gayatri Spivak to comment on the complex landscape of nationhood.
