Farhad Moshiri at The Andy Warhol Museum
The Third Line is excited to announce Farhad Moshiri's first major solo exhibition in the USA at The Andy Warhol Museum. Encompassing several bodies of work created over decades, Go West focuses on Farhad’s varied Pop subject matter, deft use of language and wide-ranging materials and methods.
Farhad's interest in Pop art and kitsch resonates throughout his work. Many of his visuals are pulled from cartoons, films, comic strips, children’s books and advertisements, while phrases appropriated from classical poetry, soap operas and pop songs blur the lines between art and cliché. By selecting ambiguous source images that reference both American and Iranian popular culture, Farhad takes a complex look at how we define our own cultural identity.
