Art Lunch

Shahrzad Malekian: Rebellious Forms

03. Feb 2023 KL. 12:00 - 12:30

Art educator Katharina Ueland will in this art lunch talk about the exhibition Shahrzad Maleikan – Rebellious forms.

The talk will be held in Norwegian.

The exhibition Rebellious Forms is an art installation that invites children—and anyone who has ever been a child—to explore and work together in the spirit of free play. Shahrzad Malekian (b. 1983 in Iran, lives and works in Oslo) makes artworks that use the human body as a starting point. Her work takes the form of performance, video, and sculpture—often in combination. For Malekian the body is both a medium and a tool to explore social, cultural, and political attitudes, norms, and structures. She uses strategies such as participation and collaboration to explore performativity and interaction, at art institutions and in the public sphere.

The monthly art lunches are arranged in collaboration with The Society of Friends at Stavanger Art Museum.
