Seasonal Special Happenings

Heading Utopia

When: Fri., Nov. 6 2015

As the Cleveland Foundation’s Fall 2015 Creative Fusion residencies conclude at the end of this month, the artists from around the world and their host organizations are presenting exhibitions in celebration of the work created during their residencies. Today from 6 to 9 p.m., Zygote Press proudly presents Behrang Samadzadegan’s Heading Utopia. Behrang Samadzadegan is based in Tehran, Iran, and works in a variety of media, including painting, print, video and installation. Samadzadegan’s work explores themes of social and cultural identity through the possibility (and impossibility) of the “images” he constructs. During his residency, Behrang Samadzadegan has worked with the drawing and painting departments at Cleveland Institute of Art and the Shaker Hts. Boys and Girls Club, as well as visiting classes at Case Western Reserve University and St. Martin de Porre. He will be part of a special panel discussion at MOCA Cleveland on Nov. 9. Heading Uptopia remains on view through Nov. 21 during Zygote’s regular business hours and by appointment. Free (Usmani)
