Fabrications is a pop-up bazaar drawing inspiration from a traditional Persian marketplace. Taraneh Hemami, in this latest iteration of her Theory of Survival project, invites twelve California-based Iranian artists to join her in engaging with Iranian political and cultural historical moments, exploring decades of collective activism and revolutionary actions inside Iran and in its larger diaspora.

Theory of Survival: Fabrications is project of Creative Capital, with additional support from Cal Humanities, California Institute for Integral Studies, Center for Cultural Innovation, California College of the Arts and the San Francisco Arts Commission Cultural Equity Grant Program through their Individual Artist Grant.
