Parsons faculty Kamrooz Aram will debut a solo show entitled, “Ornament fro Indifferent Architecture” at the Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens.
The varied oeuvre of Kamrooz Aram (b. 1978, Iran) often deals with the complex relationship between traditional non-Western art and Western modernism. Through the use of a variety of media, including painting, collage, drawing and installation, Aram has found the potential for imaging that functions critically as a means to re-negotiate history. Aram complicates the relationship between ornament and decoration; he reveals the history of the ornament as an impulse towards the absence of figuration, in search for abstraction (from museumdd.be)
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons School of Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
