Fibers artist Nazanin Amiri Meers will create an immersive installation for the University Art Gallery open October 19-December 2, 2021. A Million Miles Away contemplates cross-cultural experiences of space. By incorporating elements of Iranian architecture that reflect Islamic beliefs including screens and abstract geometric patterning, her work contemplates the concepts of privacy and quietude often emphasized in Islamic architecture but lacking in American architecture. Her work asks the viewer to examine the distinctions between and value of public and private space. Amiri Meers studied Textile Design and Print in Iran and received her MA in Design Technology in Malaysia in 2009. She immigrated to the United State in 2014 and earned an MFA in Fiber Arts at the University of Kansas. Her visit is co-sponsored with the University Art Gallery.
