For every start of a journey, there must be an end. His journey has sadly come to an end on earth.
Siah Armajani is one of the most respected, and also under-recognized, artists of the postwar era. With his adopted home in Minnesota and an unique interest in creating spaces for public engagement, he was not a member of the New York or Californian artistic cliques that dominated American art in the second half of the 20th century. The retrospective “Follow This Line,” co-curated by Victoria Sung of the Walker Art Center and Claire Davies of The Met Breuer, toured from Minneapolis in 2018 to New York in 2019 and sought to readdress the omission of the artist’s practice from many contemporary art-historical narratives. Later that year, Ute Meta Bauer curated a survey of Armajani’s six-decade career at the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore, “Spaces for the Public. Spaces for Democracy.”, foregrounding the sculptures he designed based on American vernacular architecture to facilitate gatherings and conversations—the bedrock of secular, pluralistic societies.
Siah Armajani studied philosophy at Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota, in 1960 after he was forced to leave Iran. In his native Tehran he was involved with the pro-democracy struggle against the Shah’s military government following the 1953 coup d’état orchestrated by the US and the United Kingdom against the democratically elected government.
