An evening with Artist Mahdyar Jamshidi

Join us for an evening with Artist Mahdyar Jamshidi as he presents “I Am Here”.

“I Am Here” is a continuous collective art project that concentrates on challenging the various notions of the “center.” The project took place in three stages in Iran. In Vancouver, during the artist residency in Griffin Art Projects, Jamshidi is exploring the concept of “center” from
sociopolitical, economic, psychological, and physics perspectives, collecting data and sharing information through talks and meetings with local researchers and the public.
