An inventive exhibition, Golara Haghtalab’s “Who Is Your RGB Self” features a miniature landscape by use of paintings, poems, sculpture, and interactive installations to create a fresh perspective on visual self-recognition. The project explores how we use vision to perceive ourselves through the fundamental colors of Red, Green and Blue. Breaking down boundaries, layers, and defenses, Haghtalab aims to see everyone as three primary colors that creates a flatness that magnifies our unity as human beings. In sum, the project takes a short tour into the realms within us, a journey from the inside out. Golara plans backward while thinking forward to bring her audience’s attention to their core. The exhibit will run for the month of April.
