Shirana Shahbazi: Picture the Scene
Galerie Peter Kilchmann, Rämistrasse, Zurich
Galerie Peter Kilchmann is pleased to present the gallery’s fourth solo exhibition with Shirana Shahbazi (*1974 in Tehran, Iran; lives and works in Zurich). The exhibition features all new works that explore the potential and diversity of photography and its content and technique reaching far beyond the limits of the medium.
In 2019, Shahbazi's artistic work was awarded the Prix Meret Oppenheim. In 2022, she was awarded the Mutina Art Prize; and Mutina supported the artist in the realization of her ceramics for the exhibition. Shahbazi is also a guest lecturer in the Master of Fine Arts program at ZHdK, Zurich and EPFL, Lausanne. Since 2016, she has been a founding member of the Institute New Switzerland (INES), which aims to make diversity and multiple affiliations in Switzerland visible and tangible and to advocate for participation free of racism and discrimination.
