Today is the final day to see Monir Farmanfarmaian's work at the Brugge Triennial, where one of Monir's unrealized projects - the Khayyam Fountain, comes to life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Named after Persian poet and mathematician Omar Khayyam, the large-scale installation comprises of geometrical patterns piled up as multilayer volumes to form a glass fountain. The three-, four- and even eight- or nine-sided shapes are alternately twisted and cut out into a hollow sculptural installation, that reflects ideas and dreams about a new society. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In addition to Khayyam Fountain, several earlier works by Monir will also be exhibited at The Poortersloge, one of Brugge’s historical centre buildings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Curated by Till-Holger Borchert and Michel Dewilde

Pouran Jinchi and Youssef Nabil participate in ‘The Shape of Birds’ opening tomorrow, September 15 at Newport Art Museum.
Borrowing its title from a line in a poem by Syrian writer Nizar Qabbani, the exhibition showcases the work of contemporary artists from, or with roots in, the Middle East and North Africa. Working in a wide array of media, the artists in the show both embrace older artistic traditions while exploring new media, ideas, and technologies. The title also speaks to the broader theme of migration.

Hayv Kahraman features in Art Dubai Portraits. Hayv’s practice pulls on her personal experiences of migration to Europe (and then the United States), and reflects on the placelessness and experiences of the diaspora. The body as object and subject have a central role in her work with female figures featuring heavily in her paintings, reflecting on controversial issues of gender and the female identity.⠀
