Aphrodite Désirée Navab: Landmines of Memory Art Exhibit
January 16 - April 4
Created while Navab was an Addison Edward E. Elson Artist-in-Residence, this series of ink drawings is inspired by her brother, Alexander Navab (Phillips Academy Class of 1983), who passed away unexpectedly in 2019. Mining her Iranian, Greek, and American heritage, Navab combines in this series the Labyrinth from Greek mythology and the patience stone from Persian folklore to explore stories of exile and migration, rupture and suture, loss and survival. This art exhibit will be on display through April 4.
