Age of Many Posts (2022)

Age of Many Posts Weekender, Barbican Centre, London

4-5th June 2022

“Associate Artist Abbas Zahedi presents a weekend of activities taking place across the Conservatory and Garden Room inspired by Postwar Modern and its resonances with our current age.

Across the picturesque conservatory, terrace and garden room a mixture of Abbas’ friends and associates, as well as young artists he has worked with as part of this project will present a selection of their work. This will include film, immersive audio, sculpture, painting and more. The work presented focuses on a wide range of themes from loss and family to identity and community, plus much more in between.”

The public programme featured performances from FaceSoul and Flames Collective, live poetry recitals by members of the Barbican Young Poets, and a public discussion organised by Kounsel (Abbas Zahedi and Joshua Leon).
