James Cohan is pleased to present “Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian: The Language of Symbols”, an exhibition of drawings and related sculptural works by Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian.
Over a career spanning six decades, the Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (1922 – 2019) looked to geometric forms as the basis for a rigorously structured and endlessly inventive exploration of the possibilities of line and space. This exhibition explores the ways in which drawing lies at the heart of Monir’s multivalent practice, bringing together never-before-seen expressive early works on paper with later geometric drawings to demonstrate the medium’s significance as a place for the artist to exercise spatial thinking and create her own language of symbols on a singular plane.
