Janaury 25–April 30, 2019
Art in General, New York
Arash Fewzee makes slow, physical photograms in the darkroom which have an irreproducible quality. A trained economist, Fewzee investigates self-sustaining modes of image-making; his images question the systems which drive the photographic surface by deconstructing darkroom materials and tools.
Fewzee is an artist-in-residence as part of the Frederieke Sanders Taylor Residency Program at Art in General from January 25–April 30, 2019, and is the inaugural artist for Art in General’s newly launched New Commission program, Side Project.
Arash Fewzee was born in 1989 in Mashhad, Iran and currently lives and works in New York. His artistic practice spans photography, installation, video, and sculpture and has been exhibited in New York City and internationally, most recently at The Rubber Factory. He holds a bachelor of science in Economics from Ferdowsi University and an MFA from Parsons, The New School. He has been awarded residencies at Showhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Triangle Arts Association and Baxter St Camera Club of NY. Read more about his recent work in Artforum.
