Event Description

Experience Monir Farmanfarmaian: A Mirror Garden, the first posthumous exhibition at an American museum for Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (1922–2019), one of Iran’s most celebrated and revered visual artists. Members see it first and free! On Thursday, November 17, discover this new exhibition before it opens to the public.  

The exhibition’s title is borrowed from Farmanfarmaian’s 2007 memoir, which evokes the visual splendor of the artist’s mirror-mosaic sculptures. Objects on view will include a selection of sculptures, drawings, textiles, and collages spanning four decades, from 1976 to 2019. The exhibition was inspired by the High’s 2019 acquisition of Farmanfarmaian’s cut-mirror sculpture Untitled (Muqarnas) (2012) as well as her 2014 drawing Untitled (Circles and Squares). Learn more about this special exhibition.
