Morehshin Allahyari, “Like Pearls,” 2014.

November 18 2022–January 8 2023

Always In My Heart

at Smack Mellon

Always In My Heart is an exhibition of works by Morehshin Allahyari, Hangama Amiri, and Fatemeh Kazemi, that explores the artists’ shared inquiry into popular visual and textual idioms of love, desire, and intimacy in each of their respective identity positions. Curated by Muheb Esmat in conjunction with Aziz Hazara’s solo exhibition in Gallery One, Always In My Heart brings together textiles, drawings, printed matter, and a web-based project that highlight how pop-culture idioms fall short of expressing all of what the heart can hold. The widely circulated personal and commercial expressions that appear in the artists’ works, though often seen as banal, offer vehicles for understanding the gendered limitations that underlie their formation. By highlighting the voids in these visual languages, they offer a metric for that which is left unexpressed.
