Get ready to take your selfie to the next level. As there’s a brand-new exhibition at the High Museum of Art devoted to Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (1922–2019), a celebrated Iranian artist renowned for her impeccable mirror sculptures.
The late visual artist is known internationally for her geometric mirror sculptures, that will soon be on display at Atlanta’s most famous art gallery.
This must-see collection of work combines mathematical order with the beauty of ancient Persian architectural motifs, as well as the forms and patterns of hard-edged, postwar abstraction. The results are truly out-of-this-world, with the exhibit resembling what can only be described as a gorgeous mirror garden.
The name of the exhibit is actually Monir Farmanfarmaian: A Mirror Garden, inspired by the title of her touching memoirs released in 2007. The book provided unbeatable insight on the artist’s life and work, as well as evoking the visual splendor of the artist’s mirror-mosaic sculptures.
As for the exhibit, you can expect a spectacular collection of Farmanfarmaian’s sculptures, drawings, textiles, and collages spanning four decades, specifically from 1976 to 2019. This unmissable exhibition was organized by the High Museum of Art. For more information on the exhibit or the museum, click here to visit their website.
