Siah Armajani

Siah Armajani: Follow This Line is the first comprehensive US retrospective devoted to the work of Minneapolis-based artist Siah Armajani. Born in Tehran in 1939, Armajani moved to Minnesota in 1960 to attend Macalester College in St. Paul. He has lived and worked in the Twin Cities ever since, while exhibiting internationally.

Armajani is best known today for his works of public art – bridges, gazebos, gardens, reading rooms – sited across the United States and Europe. Near the Walker, the artist’s landmark 375 foot Irene Hixon Whitney Bridge connects Loring Park to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. This groundbreaking exhibition spans six decades of the artist’s studio practice and engages a range of references – from Persian calligraphy to the manifesto, letter, and talisman; from poetry to mathematical equations and computer programming; from the Abstract Expressionist canvas to the vernacular architecture of rural America, Bauhaus design, and Russian Constructivism. The exhibition is accompanied by a major catalogue published by the Walker Art Center.
