ArtBuzz » How It’s Made: Negar Ahkami

Craving the latest in art? Join this program that mixes art, cocktails, and discussion for an evening that will leave you buzzing over the latest exhibition The Beyond: Georgia O’Keeffe and Contemporary Art. In this series (July 5, 12, and 19), guests will get a sneak peek at the materials, inspiration, and history of selected artists from the temporary exhibition. Your ticket includes a signature drink, light appetizers, and great conversation each evening! Register for each evening separately.

This night features artist Negar Ahkami! Ahkami’s paintings are colorful collisions of influence and critique that she refers to as “an aesthetic of contradiction.” She incorporates Persian architecture and design into her paintings as a proxy for Iranian culture alongside a stylized cartoon aesthetic. Join us this evening for a conversation with Ahkami that will delve into the cultural and aesthetic influences in her work, ending the evening with a look at her work, The Source,  included in The Beyond.

$20 ($16 /members), register online or with Guest Services at 479.657.2335.
