Lori Graham Design and Contemporary Wing [1412 14th St, NW] have finally torn down the paper and put out their signs!
Doors will be open to the public this Saturday at noon for the launch of the space’s first art exhibition presented by Contemporary Wing.
Contemporary Wing’s first exhibition in its new permanent home on 14th Street is Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi’s I’M COMING HOME. Doors will first be open to the public this Saturday, May 12 at noon (reception from 6pm to 8pm). Ilchi’s paintings explore the duality of her cultural identity as an Iranian–American. The new series reflects her ongoing interest in the fusion of visual codes of Western abstraction and traditional Persian Art, with an emphasis on the “Tazhib,” the Persian tradition of illumination the spoken word. The resulting synthesis evokes allegories of intrusion and invasion, referencing the historical and contemporary sociopolitical conflicts.
Lori Graham Design will host the grand opening of its furniture décor showroom – 1412- at the end of June, once Ilchi’s exhibition concludes.
