A leading figure in public art, Iranian-born artist Siah Armajani merges architecture and conceptual art in his sculptures, drawings, and public installations. Informed by democratic ideologies and inspired by American vernacular architecture, his works form gathering spaces for communality, highlighting the “nobility of usefulness.” Armajani’s public projects have included bridges, gardens, and outdoor structures, and have been showcased and commissioned worldwide. Recent solo exhibitions at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis and forthcoming at The MET, NYC.
As part of an Open Call, the Centre is seeking interested individuals, groups, or organisations to engage with the artist’s works. The Sacco and Vanzetti Reading Room #3 is available to be used for readings, gatherings, discussions, workshops, or other events. Interested parties can appropriate the installation and exhibition space, including the books accompanying the installation, in response to the exhibition and its concept or other related topics.
