Shulamit Nazarian is pleased to present I am not this hair, I am not this skin, I am the soul that lives within., a group exhibition curated by Los Angeles-based artist Amir H. Fallah. Presented in the gallery's new project space, this exhibition features works by Daniel Gibson, Todd Gray, Amanda Ross-Ho, and Francis Upritchard. It will run concurrently with Fallah's solo exhibition Remember My Child...

Derived from a quote by the 13th-century Persian poet Rumi, the exhibition's title points to the exhibiting artist's vastly different use of imagery and materials to examine the nature of portraiture by moving beyond the physical representation of a particular subject. In dialogue with the themes of Fallah's solo exhibition, Remember My Child..., these artists explore what it means to make biographical work through symbols, archetypes, and surrogates, in an effort to challenge the nature of representation.
