09 Aug MARS NOW REPRESENTING NASIM NASR
MARS Gallery is delighted to announce new representation of multi-disciplinary artist NASIM NASR.
Born in Iran, Nasr’s art practice has sought to comment upon the transience of cultural and personal identity. With an interest in cultural relationships in contemporary society, her artworks have engaged themes of intercultural dialogue and perspective between the historical and contemporary. Using video, photography, performance & 3D objects these works highlight notions of cultural difference as experienced in her past and present homelands, between West and East.
Nasim Nasr has exhibited nationally and internationally including the inaugural Triennial of Asia: We Do Not Dream Alone in 2021, a major survey of contemporary art from Asia and the diaspora at the Asia Society Museum in New York.
Her work is held in major public and private collections including the Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney; Parliament House Art Collection, Canberra; Gene and Brian Sherman Collection; and Artbank, Sydney, and, in 2017 she was the recipient of the people’s choice award in The William and Winifred Bowness Photography Art Prize.
“Nasim’s sophisticated approach to how she engages with cultural experiences and wider global issues instantly drew me to her work. Her practice explores the complexities of identities, and the cross-cultural dialogue is significant and timeless that is ever more relevant today.” – Andy Dinan
We’re very pleased to welcome Nasim to MARS. Watch out for works by Nasim at Sydney Contemporary and for her forthcoming debut exhibition at MARS Gallery in late March 2023.
