Fine Arts Faculty Kamrooz Aram to Open Solo Show at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

FOCUS: Kamrooz Aram

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

March 31 – June 17 2018

3200 Darnell St

Fort Worth, TX

Spanning painting, sculpture, collage, and installation, Kamrooz Aram’s work investigates the complex relationship between Western modernism and classical non-Western art. By highlighting their formal connections, he reveals the typically downplayed role that non-Western art and design have played in the development of modernism and its drive toward abstraction. Challenging the traditionally Euro-centric narrative established by art history, Aram’s work sets forth to disrupt this perceived hierarchy by merging and equalizing Western and non-Western forms. The artist will present all new work for this exhibition.
