Exploring shifts in meaning between object, image, and site, Tannaz Farsi’s work examines the contingent nature of memory and the role of the individual in environments of displacement caused by political upheaval and ideological conflict through sculpture, installation, and conceptual art practices. Farsi’s work has been exhibited nationally at venues including Disjecta Interdisciplinary Art Center (Portland, OR), Pitzer Art Galleries (Claremont, CA), Tacoma Art Museum (Tacoma, WA), the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art (Grand Rapids, MI), Delaware Center for Contemporary Art (Wilmington, DE), and Sculpture Center (Cleveland, OH). She has participated in residencies at Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Ucross Foundation and the MacDowell Colony. In 2014 she was awarded the prestigious Ford Family Fellowship. Farsi is an Associate Professor of Art at the University of Oregon.
