In Conversation: Soheila Sokhanvari and Ben Platts-Mills

Soheila Sokhanvari and Ben Platt-Mills

Join British-Iranian artist Soheila Sokhanvari as she discusses her new exhibition, Rebel Rebel, with writer and artist Ben Platts-Mills.

British-Iranian artist Soheila Sokhanvari sits down with writer and artist Ben Platts-Mills to discuss Rebel Rebel, an inspiring new exhibition celebrating and commemorating feminist icons from pre-revolutionary Iran.

Rebel Rebel sees the Curve transformed into a devotional space, populated with exquisite miniature portraits of glamorous cultural figures from Iran. The exhibition spotlights the rarely told histories of these women, who pursued creative careers in a culture enamoured with Western style but not its freedoms.

The immersive space will be hand-painted floor to ceiling with geometric patterns based on traditional Islamic design.

Sokhanvari will be joined in conversation with Ben Platts-Mills, a writer and artist whose work investigates power, reasoning, and vulnerability.

Tickets are free but seating will be allocated on a first come first served basis and will be subject to availability.
