Theory of Survival

Taraneh Hemami
with: Ala Ebtekar, Ali Dadgar, Termeh Yeghiazarian, Shadi Yousefian and Darvag Theater Group
Closing event: Friday April 18th, 6-9

Theory of Survival is a residency at the LAB with Taraneh Hemami that invites a cross generation of Iranian and Iranian-American artists to engage with an archive of posters, publications, and documents belonging to the Iranian Students Association of Northern California, active from 1960-1982. During the residency the project turns the gallery space into an evolving laboratory for exchange and collaboration, exploring the unique collection that reflects local history of Iranian immigrants in these politically critical years. The archive which includes numerous publications, theoretical discourse, original essays, translations, as well as newspapers and documents will be processed for partial contribution to the Library of Congress and the Hamid & Christina Moghadam Program in Iranian Studies Center at Stanford at the end of the residency.

Theory of Survival is a continuation of Hemami's CrossConnections project that engages the Iranian and Iranian-American diaspora community in an intergenerational, creative dialogue exploring issues of cultural identity, preservation, and representation.
