POP Symposium

POP Symposium and Art POP Present: Anahita Norouzi

Rialto Hall



Gratuit | Free


The presentations of this afternoon will explore the grey areas between performance art and lecture with pieces by Anahita Norouzi. The afternoon will be capped off by Norouzi’s A Space In-Between, a lecture-performance in which Norouzi rewrites history as a series of speculative events that parallel reality and draw upon the political and historical knowledge she accumulated whilst living in both Iran and Canada. The narrative’s anchoring theme is the discipline that the State imposes upon citizens. Text, images, videos, and objects are layered and interwoven to create an unstable narrative to be deciphered by the viewer and elaborated upon during Norouzi’s performance.
