ARCHIWALLS showcases the abstract work of Azadeh Hussaini, who uses newspaper forms to question social behavior and other aspects of the human condition. Azadeh Hussaini is a Chicago-based Iranian-American visual artist and art educator. She obtained a BFA in Painting from Azad Art University in Tehran and an MFA in Non-figurative Painting from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Hussaini’s series of paper-based works, ARCHIWALLS, is an abstract visualization inspired by harmonious, but not necessarily identical, repetitive forms in nature. She implicates the basic primordial desires of social behavior and relationships by emphasizing the differences in each form as part of a movement, phenomenon, or social event. Her use of newspaper questions the contemporary human condition as bombarded with information and news. The paper forms therefore critique the lack of opportunity to control, disseminate, validate, or respond to information. Azadeh Hussaini: ARCHIWALLS will be exhibited in the second floor gallery of the Art Center. The opening reception and panel discussion are free and open to the public. Join us for a panel discussion with Azadeh Hussaini and Leili Adibfar, PhD Candidate, Modern and Contemporary Art with an Emphasis on Iran at UIC.

OPUS 327 has announced the creation of a Centennial Fund to be used for ongoing maintenance of the myriad of mechanical systems that were a part of Skinner’s genius.
