Amir Baradaran is a New York-based artist, born in Tehran and raised in Montreal. His breakthrough 2007 work, The Poetic Quarrel, was inspired by his life-long interest in mysticism fostered by his grandfather’s writings and his mother’s poetry. His most recent work, The Other Artist is Present, performed March 12, 2010 at Museum of Modern Art, in New York, pays homage, questions, and ultimately departs from the work of Balkan artist, Marina Abramovic, a pioneer in the field of performance art.’ As a public speaker, Baradaran has addressed issues of authority and authorship and is known for examining the cross-section of race, sexuality and theory. His academic work has been very well received by the media in Canada as well as in Iranian Diaspora.
