Shaghayegh Cyrous has just joined the ASG team!
With this new funding from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, we will be moving a long-time volunteer to a paid contract position. Shaghayegh is an artist, curator, and was ASG’s 2017 Exhibition Fellow.
Shaghayegh will be handling a great deal of our marketing and outreach for our exhibition programs and events. When you see her around ASG, give her a warm welcome!
About Shaghayegh: “I moved to the Bay Area in 2011 due to political tensions in my home country. Since then, my work has dealt with the experience of cross-cultural communication and translation, addressing predicaments of estrangement and distance caused by political and cultural power dynamics. My projects incorporate interactive time-based strategies such as social practice, socially engaged art, and participatory performances, as well as digital technologies such as video installation and live video chats, to create poetic spaces and opportunities for human connection.”
