Negar Ahkami: After Winter Must Come Spring
This video is the first in a new series we are calling AAC Off the Wall. Throughout this series our Curator of Exhibitions, Blair Murphy, will be joined via Zoom by our resident artists as they take a deeper look at a specific piece of artwork within the context of their artistic practices.
We were excited to launch this series with AAC resident artist Negar Ahkami‘s installation, After Winter Must Come Spring, an interactive dance floor that was part of her first solo show at AAC in the spring of 2018. The work and the exhibition approached the themes of dance and music as strategies for surviving dark times. We believe this is an incredibly relevant conversation to have at this moment in time.
