For the opening reception, Amir H. Fallah and exhibition curator Amy Landau will be joined by UCLA Design Media Arts professor emeritus and book designer Willem Henri Lucas, and president of Judson Studios David Judson to discuss Fallah’s practice, collaborations, and the significance of his work in Los Angeles. A reception in the courtyard will follow from 7–9 pm.
The Fallacy of Borders is the first solo Los Angeles museum presentation of artist Amir H. Fallah. More than 25 works on view span painting, sculpture, stained glass, and textiles, all characterized by vivid and saturated colors, dense patterns, and layered imagery. Fallah draws on a wide range of traditions, from fashion design to venerated art histories, and finds inspiration in intersections of cultures from around the globe in his adoptive city of Los Angeles. Working fluidly across genres and media, he contends with themes of inheritance and appropriation, personhood and objecthood, diaspora and homeland, challenging us to question and transcend boundaries and borders that separate people, cultures, geographies, and art practices.
