Myth of 4 /افسانه ۴
Works of Videos, a Live Performance, and Artists’ Talks by Iranian and SWANA Artists
June 10- August 28, 2022
Myth of 4, is a new series of Zamin Project founded by Shaghayegh Cyrous, and, presented by Clarion Alley Mural Project, showcasing new videos and performances by ten Iranian artists based in the Bay Area. Myth of 4 reimagines and recreates our present and future. In this program, the artists redefine their imaginary worlds, inspired by the four elements, Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. The theme of Afsaneye 4/ Myth of 4 blossomed out of a series of conversations between the participating artists in the project.
In addition to the new videos and a performance by the 10 Iranian artists, the program includes one open call for video works, inviting SWANA (South West Asia and North Africa) artists based in California; to reimagine our world inspired by the theme of the four elements.
The project includes ten events featuring a live performance, video screenings, and artist talks in three venues, Central Stage in Richmond, CA (East Bay), Artists’ Television Access (ATA), and The David Ireland House in San Francisco, and one week screening at Hamzianpour & Kia Gallery in Los Angeles, California. This program is made possible by the California Arts Council.
Artists include Sholeh Asgary, Shaghayegh Cyrous, Ramin Etemadi, Esha Sadr, Azin Seraj, Keyvan Shovir, B Sisters, Nasim Moghadam, Mobina Nouri, and Narges Poursadeghi.
