Tannaz Farsi is an Associate Professor of Art at the University of Oregon. Her work has been supported through grants and awards from the Oregon Arts Commission, National Endowment for the Arts, University of Oregon and The Ford Family Foundation where she was named a Hallie Ford Fellow in 2014. She works through a spatial and material practice, using sculptures, photography, print, and digital media to question the complexities of colonialist legacies. Farsi’s recent series, Points of Departure, both documents and poses contemporary responses to historic forms within Iranian visual culture to celebrate the rich feminist history of resistance. Two works will be featured in YOU IN MIND: an architectural intervention for PNCA and a light work for Disjecta.
