Two-Headed Imagomancy: Stories of Dream and Design from Iran Tether

  • Tether 316 Occidental Ave S Seattle, WA, 98104 United States

AIGA Seattle hosts Iman Raad and Shahrzad Changalvaee, influential Iranian artists and graphic designers for a talk.  Raad and Changalvaee add a modern dimension to traditional Iranian storytelling “Pardeh-khani” which translates to “curtain-narrating”. In Pardeh-khani a narrator employs an illustrated curtain—scenes are woven together and the narrator flows from story to story using visuals to underline each important character or scene. Raad and Changalvaee reappropriate this classical storytelling device with contemporary multi-media visuals to examine the Persian folklore and myths that inform their work.
