Abbas Akhavan

abbas

This represents the first publication covering the practice of Toronto-based artist Abbas Akhavan, examining a large body of his work over the course of his career, ranging from site-specific ephemeral installations to drawing, video and performance. The domestic sphere, as a forked space between hospitality and hostility, has been an ongoing area of research in Akhavan’s work. More recent works have shifted focus, wandering onto spaces just outside the home – the garden, the backyard, and other domesticated landscapes. This title, co-produced with Skira, reflects the conceptual aesthetics of Akhavan’s practice and includes essays by leading curators and professors of art, including, among others, Omar Kholeif and Marina Roy.
