Seven Prints and a Performance
Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 12th, 6-8pm
Exhibition dates: September 12th – October 13th, 2018
Baxter St at the Camera Club of New York is pleased to present Seven Prints and a Performance, a solo show by 2018 Workspace Resident Arash Fewzee. In this new body of work, Fewzee presents 7 works (both c-prints and ceramic pieces) that serve as an anchor for the performance, which lasts the entirety of the exhibition. Interested in the construction and reconstruction of systems, Fewzee’s performance is activated by both the viewers and the staff at Baxter St at CCNY, invoking moments of discovery and shift.
Arash Fewzee (born 1989, Mashhad, Iran) lives and works in New York. His work includes photography, installation, video, and sculpture and has been exhibited both in New York City and internationally, including most recently at Lishui photography biennial 2017 at Lishui museum of art in China. He holds a bachelor of science in Economics from Ferdowsi University and an MFA from Parsons, The New School.
