Afshin Pirhashemi


Afshin Pirhashemi’s latest solo exhibition imagines today’s migration crisis as a series of vignettes that form an epic story of freedom, desire and determination. Using allegory as a means of describing this difficult reality, several new large-scale works depict a group of bold women who must navigate a war-torn terrain in order to build new lives in far off lands. Universal symbols of freedom such as the Statue of Liberty stand in stark contrast to a pack of wolves that lingers in the distance as Pirhashemi’s bold heroines seek to determine their own fate.



Founded in 2006, Ayyam Gallery is a leading arts organisation that manages the careers of diverse established and emerging artists. Blue-chip art spaces in Beirut and Dubai, a series of collaborative projects in the United States, Europe, and Asia and a multinational non-profit arts programme have furthered the gallery’s mandate of expanding the parameters of international art. With its widely respected multilingual publishing division and a custodianship programme that manages the estates of pioneering artists, Ayyam Gallery has also contributed to recent efforts that document underrepresented facets of global art history.
