FaciFacing the Wall, Censored Work entitled: A Prison Called Iran, 10' X 5', Mixed Media
This is my 10' X 5' censored artwork at the gallery M in Milwaukee, WI, 2011. In order not to remove my work from the exhibition and protest against the censorship in USA, I turned the piece facing the wall during the entire exhibition. The public did not get to see the artwork, but it brought many discussion about the topic. The vedio is too large to uploade on this site.
Throughout the entire exhibition this work remained facing the wall and the public did not have a chance to view the actual artwork.
This work and the act of censorship that took place in the gallery caused many discussion on social media and news paper on the right to free expression in the USA. This peice was performed in Baltimore in 2015.
