By nature we’re presented with a never-ending stream of problems and tasks to solve. Somehow, each question and hurdle we successfully manage jauntily slides into the next decision to be made. It’s an infinite chain reaction that likely keeps us sharp, and it inherently becomes intuitive over time– What do I want for breakfast? What time is it?

Denny Gallery is pleased to present Sheida Soleimani’s Birds of Passage from September 5 to October 7, 2023. In the newest installation of her series Ghostwriter, which opened at Providence College Galleries and Edel Assanti in London in 2022–23, and is currently on view at MFA Boston, Soleimani “ghostwrites” her parents’ lives: as pro-democratic dissidents targeted by the totalitarian regime in Iran after ’79; and as stateless refugees forced to seek asylum across Europe and in pre- and post-9/11 America. In these photographic assemblages, Soleimani creates palimpsests of memories as a way to reckon with the narratives that she herself has constructed throughout her life from her parents’ stories, drawings, notes, and artifacts of the seismic events that continue to shape their lives.
The First Ten Years – opening July 6 and running through August 18 – celebrates the gallery’s first decade.

To mark this first decade, the gallery will present a group exhibition of our represented artists that remembers outstanding exhibitions from each of our first ten years while simultaneously looking to the gallery’s future.
