In painter Vian Sora’s latest solo show, she illustrates a similarity between Berlin, Germany and Baghdad, Iraq. During a residency in Berlin last year, she had the chance to learn about the city’s rebirth after World War II. “As an Iraqi born artist,” she said, “my first-hand experience of war, political upheaval, migration and subsequent geographic and cultural displacement has deeply affected my life and my art. Since leaving Iraq, my works expressively address these issues.” The opening reception, with Sora in attendance, is Friday, March 4 from 5-8 p.m.
