The UNLV Department of Art welcomes Amir H. Fallah to the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art on Thursday, October 5, 2017 for the Fall Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

Amir H. Fallah challenges Western traditions of portraiture and identity representation with lush paintings and mixed media environments. Founder of the art magazine Beautiful/Decay, he has exhibited at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas, the 56th La Biennale di Venezia, Italy, and The Third Line, Dubai. In 2015 he received a Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant. Fallah lives and works in Los Angeles. 

The UNLV Visiting Artist Lecture Series features a diverse array of some of the most compelling artists and thinkers working in the art world today. This important program brings both established and emerging artists to campus to discuss their work in public lectures, and to offer individual critiques to our BFA and MFA students. This program has established itself as an invaluable resource for UNLV students and the public alike. The primary mission of the Visiting Artists Lecture Series is to educate, inspire and foster a greater understanding and appreciation of contemporary art through visual presentations and discourse.
