Join Aftab and Hillyer Art Space for a night of Contemporary Middle Eastern Traditional music with Kamyar Arsani and Huda Asfour.

Exhibition Dates: September 1-October 29, 2017
Opening: September 1, 6-9pm

Featuring photography and video installations, this exhibition examines the concept of "Public Space" from the viewpoint of the artist. The collective experience of Iranian citizens that has been subject to political and social transformations. The works in this exhibition are not only documented narratives of urban life, but also an artistic reflection of life experiences in Iran.

Huda & Kamyar is a project between Palestinian oud player Huda Asfour and Kamyar on the daf. They tour locally with the goal of bringing middle eastern traditional and contemporary music to broader audiences.

Join us for a talk by Iranian painter Farima Fooladi. Born in Tehran, Fooladi is currently living and working at State College, PA. Her "Displacement" series delves into the various emotional and historical layers of public space and memory. In her work, she comments on the way social and political changes transform civic spaces, creating new maps instead of following existing ones. She addresses recent social and political changes in the country and its effect on culture. Inspired by mythical stories such as the Tower of Babel, Fooladi borrows from their symbolism to address current dilemmas.

This program is organized by Hillyer Art Space, a program of International Arts & Artists, in partnership with the Middle East Institute's Arts and Culture Program. Recently established, MEI's unique program in the nation's capital provides a window into the Middle East's vibrant arts scene and connects Middle Eastern artists with their US counterparts. The event is being presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Urban Mapping: Public Space through the Lens of Contemporary Iranian Artists" on display at Hillyer Art Space September 1 - October 29, 2017.
Join us for a screening of the film "Persepolis" based on Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel. Following the film will be a short audience discussion and reception.

Thursday October 19th, 7-9pm

Based on Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel about her life in pre and post-revolutionary Iran and then in Europe, "Persepolis" traces Satrapi's growth from child to rebellious, punk-loving teenager in Iran. In the background are the growing tensions of the political climate in Iran in the 70s and 80s, with members of her liberal-leaning family detained and then executed, and the background of the disastrous Iran/Iraq war.

This program is in conjunction with our exhibition "Urban Mapping: Public Space through the Lens of Contemporary Iranian Artists" on display September 1 - October 29, 2017.
Join us on Saturday, September 23, 7pm-midnight as Hillyer celebrates Art All Night - Made in D.C! Featuring performances curated by Alexandra Delafkaran and DIY screen printing with The Arcade!

Art All Night: Made in DC is Washington, DC’s free overnight arts festival, starting at 7:00 PM on Saturday, September 23, 2017 and running until 3:00 AM (Hillyer closes at Midnight). The festival will take place in six DC Main Streets neighborhoods, bringing visual and performing arts, including painting, photography, sculpture, crafts, fashion, music, dance, theater, film, and poetry, to indoor and outdoor public and private spaces, including businesses.

Performance: Intimately Public, curated by Rex Delafkaran
Intimately Public will be a one night public performance event in correspondence with Hillyer’s Urban Mapping exhibition. Traveling through multiple sites from Dupont Circle Memorial Fountain to Hillyer Art Space it will be an evening of live art that deals with the vulnerable and instigative nature of performing in public. Works will collectively explore how the performer forms a relationship to audience, architecture, and urban space. All performances will be site-specific surrounded by local galleries and businesses, ending with a collaborative finale at Hillyer Art Space.

DIY Screen Printing with The Arcade
Each year Hillyer creates a unique screen print design for Art All Night. This year local artist Bethany Hansen of the Arcade is back and will teach guests how to make a screen print to take home with them! This year’s screen print will be influenced by Middle Eastern design patterns, inspired by our exhibition “Urban Mapping”.
