“Siah Armajani: Follow This Line”

“Melding influences that range from Russian Constructivism to traditional Persian calligraphy to digital aesthetics, the art and architecture of Iranian-
born, Minneapolis-based Siah Armajani suggest powerful cross-cultural connections.”

Melding influences that range from Russian Constructivism to traditional Persian calligraphy to digital aesthetics, the art and architecture of Iranian-
born artist Siah Armajani suggest powerful cross-cultural connections. This survey of his work, which arrives in New York from the Walker Art Center, includes more than eighty pieces made over the past six decades, from architectonic sculptures to large-scale building plans. A resident of the Twin Cities since 1960, Armajani has realized several key projects there, including an iconic footbridge that links downtown Minneapolis to the municipal sculpture garden.
