Join Shirana Shahbazi for a talk about her exhibition and residency at the Hammer Museum. During her stay in Los Angeles as a Hammer artist-in-residence, Shahbazi explored the city and developed a new body of work that captures Los Angeles and its surroundings. Her project for the Lobby Wall incorporates several of these new photographs as well as a wall-size painting made by Iranian sign painters, after one of her photographs.
Shirana Shahbazi is presented through a residency at the Hammer Museum. The Hammer Museum's Artist Residency Program was initiated with funding from the Nimoy Foundation and is supported through a significant grant from the James Irvine Foundation.
Hammer Projects is made possible with support from The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, the Annenberg Foundation, Fox Entertainment Group's Arts Development Fee, Susan Bay-Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, and the David Teiger Curatorial Travel Fund. Gallery brochures are underwritten in part by the Pasadena Art Alliance.
