Sheida Soleimani solo exhibition at Atlanta Contemporary, Cue Art Foundation and Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Centre

'Sheida Soleimani: Medium of Exchange' on view in 2018

Three US institutions, the Atlanta Contemporary, GA, Cue Art Foundation, NY, and Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Centre, OH, announced solo exhibitions by the American-Iranian artist Sheida Soleimani in 2018.

 

Medium of Exchange follows Soleimani’s investigation of the complex relationships between leaders of OPEC countries and the West, finding both complicit in warfare that has come as a result of oil interest. Investigating the ties between these powerful figures, Medium of Exchange uses the tactics of theatre and humor to scrutinize the corruption stemming from the oil trade, and suggests a new way of viewing the codependence of leaders.

 

Medium of Exchange was commissioned by the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Centre, OH.
