The Persian Garden and the History of Iran - Teacher Workshop
Wednesday, January 11, 2017
This workshop will introduce teachers to the work of Iranian-born, Brooklyn-based artist Bahar Behbahani. Behbahani has created a suite of paintings, installations, and video focused on the Persian Garden in her exhibition, Bahar Behbahani: Let the Garden Eram Flourish. Behbahani explores the beauty and politics of these contested garden spaces that remain lush all year in the middle of the desert. In her work, the garden becomes a metaphor for Iran’s difficult histories, past and present.
Bahar Behbahani and curator Nzewi Ugochukwu will provide a tour of the exhibition. Teachers will then be invited to explore a range of experiences designed for middle and high school tour groups.
This workshop is recommended for 2.5 contact hours toward recertification.
A number of free programs, including lectures and gallery talks are offered throughout the year. Visit our calendar of events for specific dates and times.
