Sheida Soleimani: Hotbed
When: through December 23
Where: Denny Dimin (appointments available) (39 Lispenard Street, TriBeCa, Manhattan)
For her first solo exhibition in New York, Soleimani presents a series of photocollages focused on the increasingly timely issue of the strained nature of US-Iran relations. Myriad crises-within-the-crisis manifest in her layered compositions, yielding intriguing, if occasionally unsettling visual treatises that reflect on power and corruption.
