Brooklyn-based Mariam Ghani (b. 1978) investigates cities in the process of reinventing themselves. She experiments with the nature of archiving and screen- and Web-based presentation, capturing moments of profound transformation. Her preoccupation with the translation of ideas across cultural and generational borders was shaped during her childhood in a household where American, Arabic, and Afghan cultures met. Ghani’s recent exhibitions include the Sharjah and Liverpool biennials. This program is presented as part of Asian Contemporary Art Week 2011. For the full ACAW schedule, visit acaw.net.
