PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST
Grand Lobby, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts 701 Mission St. (view map)
Taravat Talepasand's Peace in the Middle East has returned as a permanent installation in YBCA's Grand Lobby. Hung from the ceiling, this intricate neon artwork, featuring the word "peace" in Farsi, explores the cultural taboos that reflect on gender and political authority through Talepasand's lens as an Iranian-American woman.
Best Viewing: Step inside any time that the YBCA is open (Thursday - Sunday, Noon - 6 p.m.)
