Event Description

The Frist Art Museum presents critically acclaimed Iranian American artist Afruz Amighi’s first monographic museum exhibition, "The Presence of Your Absence Is Everywhere", on view in the Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery from June 22 through September 16th. Celebrated for her lyrical transformation of inexpensive materials into ethereal installations and sculptures, Amighi uses light and dark to wondrous effect. Organized by the Frist Art Museum, the exhibition features Amighi’s work from 2014 to today, a period of intense and prolific output in which the artist has relentlessly pushed herself in new directions. One sculpture and two drawings are being made especially for the exhibition, while two existing installations have never been shown in the United States.
