Disco Islam: Commentary Performance

Friday, 1 July 2022
7 – 7.30 pm

Bringing to life the Disco Islam: Future Phantasmagoria installation, Bijan Moosavi takes on the role of Muslim entrepreneur and Islamic futurist through a performance within his installation. The performance will riff off ‘YouTube Commentary’ and ‘YouTube Reaction’ videos to create a live interpretation of the artists’ sci-fi corporate Disco Islam (2020) film.

This performance supports the installation of the same name in our second gallery.

Bijan Moosavi has presented his work at V.O Curations, London (2022), AD/AD Project Space, Hanover (2021), The Nunnery Gallery, London (2020), Forecast Forum, Berlin (2019), Bonhams, London (2018), The Art House, Wakefield (2017), OTO Project Space, London (2016), Lewisham Arthouse, London (2015), SOAS University, London (2012), Mohsen Art Gallery, Tehran (2010), Sazmanab Project, Tehran (2010) and Azad Art Gallery, Tehran (2010). He was selected as a finalist for the Magic of Persia Contemporary Art Prize in 2018 and 2013 and was an artist-in-residence at the Delfina Foundation in London in 2019.
