Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian: Cosmic Geometry

Edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Karen Marta. Text by Nader Ardalan, Media Farzin, Eleanor Sims. Conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Featured image, "Relief Heptagon" (1977), mirror, reverse glass painting and plaster on wood, is reproduced from <a href="http://www.artbook.com/9788862081757.html">Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian</a>.Born in 1924 in the ancient Persian city of Qazvin, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian spent her childhood in a grand old house replete with stained glass, wall paintings and nightingales. Coming of age during World War II, she left occupied Iran and audaciously set out for New York, where she was quickly absorbed into the city's thriving avant garde. In the decades to follow, during successive exiles in Tehran and New York, Farmanfarmaian developed an intuitive yet painstakingly crafted artistic practice in mirror mosaic and reverse-painted glass that weds the cosmic patterning of her Iranian heritage with the rhythms of modern Western geometric abstraction. This book is the first substantial survey of Farmanfarmaian's acclaimed geometric works, and features an in-depth interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist; critical essays by Nader Ardalan, Media Farzin and Eleanor Sims; warm tributes by Farmanfarmaian's friends Etel Adnan, Siah Armajani, caraballo-farman, Golnaz Fathi, Hadi Hazavei, Susan Hefuna, Aziz Isham, Rose Issa, Faryar Javaherian, Abbas Kiarostami, Shirin Neshat, Donna Stein and Frank Stella; an excerpt from The Sense of Unity: The Sufi Tradition in Persian Architecture by Nader Ardalan and Laleh Bakhtiar (1973); and an annotated timeline of Farmanfarmaian's life by Negar Azimi.
"A role model for the artist of the twenty-first century." -Hans Ulrich Obrist

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

ArtAsiaPacific

Olivier Krischer

More than a monograph of a six-decades-long oeuvre, this is a lavish tribute by critics and admires to the grand dame of Iranian art, renowned for her mirrored geometric constructions, which speak with equal fluency of classic and modern beauty.

FROM THE BOOK
"Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian is not only a pioneering figure of Iranian art but also a forerunner of current artistic models that participate in global dialogues without annihilating local difference. It was Rosemarie Trockel who first helped me realize that it is urgent to preserve traces of intelligence from past decades, particularly that of the twentieth-century pioneers whose eyes have seen a century, many of whom are not online and whose invaluable testimony thus might pass into oblivion. With my everexpanding Interview Project, I try to contribute by interviewing artists like Monir and other cultural practitioners to what historian Eric Hobsbawm has called a “protest against forgetting.” After all, it is not only in art that the future is built out of fragments of the past.
In 2007 I was invited to participate in the first Art Dubai. I was just beginning to research the Middle East, and I started asking artists my favorite question, “Who is one of your heroes?” Many of them answered, “Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian.” The following year I asked that Monir be invited to Art Dubai so I could finally have the opportunity to meet her in person. At our first meeting over breakfast, Monir began telling me about her extra-ordinary life. Since then, it has been my dream to publish a book that not only recounts the fascinating narrative of her life but also serves as a survey of her amazing work. I am especially pleased that this monograph is also a document of the ongoing dialogue and lasting friendship that Monir and I have established since that first meeting in Dubai."

-Hans Ulrich Obrist, excerpted from the introduction to Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian
