Eastern's Rahmanifar Exhibits at the Benton Museum

afarin 2.jpgWorks by Afarin Rahmanifar, visual art lecturer, are part "Persepolis: Word & Image," a current exhibition at the William Benton Museum of Art Museum at the University of Connecticut in Storrs from Jan. 21-March 16.  The opening reception is Jan. 23 from 4:30-7 p.m.

Inspired by both the format and content of Persepolis, the graphic novel and coming-of-age memoir by Marjane Satrapi, Persepolis: Word & Image draws from the Benton's permanent collection to present some of the ways that text and art have functioned historically. In addition to Rahmanifar's work, other art is on loan from such contemporary Iranian artists as Pouran Jinchi, Shirin Neshat and Hadieh Shafie, for whom text is intrinsic to their practice.
