What We Know that We Don't Know
KADIST, San Francisco
Curated by Arash Fayez

21 June - 19 August 2017

Drawing inspiration from poetic tendencies in Persian literature, where metaphor, irony, and paradox are understood as devices that allow artists to encode their opinions in complex cultural and political circumstances, What We Know that We Don't Know explores the poetic space of paradox, where works intentionally provide multiple angles of interpretation and opposing meanings collide.

Exhibiting artists include: Nazgol Ansarinia, A.K. Burns, Nicolás Consuegra, Trisha Donnelly, Claire Fontaine, Ha Tae-Bum, Walid Raad, and Miljohn Ruperto.
