Join us for a conversation between artist Amir H. Fallah and matt dilling from Lite Brite Neon Studio, a beloved collective of craftspeople specializing in neon art, moderated by cultural historian Shiva Balaghi.

In his most recent collaborative work, Fallah has leveraged his art to keep public attention on protestors risking their lives in the fight for freedom in Iran. CHANT is a large-scale neon artwork that will be displayed on the front of Shulamit Nazarian Gallery at Los Angeles’ prominent intersection of La Brea and Melrose Avenues in Los Angeles. The work is a collaboration between Fallah and dilling and was made possible by Fallah’s own GoFundMe effort.

In Fallah’s words, “CHANT is a beacon for all those united in the struggle for freedom,” designed to hold public attention on Iran following the senseless murder of Mahasa Amini at the hands of the morality police.
