The College of Southern Nevada Department of Fine Arts will host an exhibition of collaborative painting and installation artwork by Iranian born artist Ali Fathollahi and Nanda Sharif-pour. Fathollahi and Sharif-pour’s artwork makes use of uncanny imagery, reflections, reproductions and artifacts as it asks such questions as: What do we experience when we experience others or ourselves? How much of it is reality and how much of it is a story we tell ourselves? What is the nature of conversation between the observer and the observed? Ali Fathollahi and Nanda Sharif-pour’s “Hearing a Mirror” will begin Friday, February 10, and will run through Saturday, March 25, 2017. Fathollahi and Sharif-pour will participate in a Gallery Talk at 7 p.m. and an Artist Reception on Friday, February 10, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the CSN Artspace Gallery.

Since 1999 she has participated in over 40 group and solo exhibitions in United States, Turkey and Iran. Currently she is a graduate student in UNLV Master of Fine Arts program.
