Join Dr. Behrang Nabavi Nejad, Art History instructor at Capilano University, for the first in our fall series of lectures as she explores the work of contemporary Persian artist Parviz Tanavoli, whose work is currently showing at the Vancouver Art Gallery until November 19. Tanavoli is an Iranian sculptor, painter, educator, and art historian who is a pioneer within the Saqqakhaneh school, a neo-traditionalist art movement.

Dr. Behrang Nabavi Nejad received her doctoral degree in Art History and Visual Studies from the University of Victoria (2017) where she has taught courses on Islamic art and architecture. She holds master’s degrees of art from the department of Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations, The University of Toronto (2009), and History of Art from Bangalore University, India (2000).

She has taught courses on various aspects of art history including world art history, Canadian contemporary art, graphic novels, women in art, at the Capilano University and Columbia College, both in Vancouver, Canada. She has recently articulated a course on Persian art and architecture: from ancient to contemporary that is presently being offered at the Capilano University (Winter 2023).

When: Thursday, October 12, 7–9 p.m.
