Bahar Behbahani on Politics and Persian Gardens

February 2nd, 2017 · Comments

Iranian born, New York based artist Bahar Behbahani talks about the layers of poetry and politics she discovered while researching the legendary Persian garden. Her solo exhibition at the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College reveals how the idyllic refuge became entangled with American espionage and a 1953 political coup in Iran. Highly relevant considering the mounting intensity of today's global tensions, the hidden agendas and coded behaviors exposed in Bahar Behbahani's work might well be the blueprint for a new political barrier erected this week: the executive order of a restrictive, anti-Muslim United States immigration policy.

Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya

December 21st, 2016 · Comments

Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya—Curator Gina Wouters, and artists Mira Lehr and Yara Travieso talk about What This Place Does Not Remember, one of eleven projects in the contemporary art exhibition Lost Spaces and Stories at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, Florida.

The inspiration for Mira Lehr's and Yara Travieso's dramatic Baroque performance installation? The wild garden at the edge of the museum's south property and Henry Purcell's Dido and Aeneas, an English opera he composed more than 300 years ago. The opera tells the mythological story of Dido, Queen of Carthage, and her love for the Trojan hero Aeneas. In What This Place Does Not Remember, the two contemporary artists personify Vizcaya as the legendary Queen Dido. Lehr's environmental installation sets the stage for Dido's Lament, the performance that Travieso directs. An opera singer, a dancer, and a cellist enact the queen’s tragic love story within a lyric web of black rope that evokes the surrounding mangroves.

Sound Editor: Guney Ozscan | Dido's Lament performance: Amanda Crider (Mezzo Soprano), Stephanie Jaimes (Cellist)
