Eyes Should Be Washed

July 25, 2019, 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Listed In: Talks and Screenings

Curator John Schuerman will provide an introduction to the exhibition The Other Four, followed by “Eyes Should Be Washed,” a performance art piece by artists Pedram Baldari, Katayoum Amjadi, and Nooshin Hakim Javadi. In “Eyes Should Be Washed,” performers grate many, many onions in front of the audience. This act, through the smell of the onions, brings tears to stimulated eyes in order to wash/clean them. The work is a dialogue with Iranian Poet Sohrab Sepehri, whose poems call for change in perception to find peace within self. In some cultures, especially Iranian culture, crying is considered an act of soul cleansing and is practiced through religious rituals.

Free and open to the public
