Raheleh Filsoofi: On Transcending the Inhibited Space

O'Kane Gallery (UH-Downtown)

August 16 - September 25, 2018

"The exhibition consists of two, related installations by the Iranian-American artist, Raheleh Filsoofi. Her conceptual approach to art, which features video and sound, enables her to address important contemporary issues, often through psychological perception. She is fascinated by the sense that place has in one’s identity and how visual and aural stimulae serve to define it."
