Soheila Sokhanvari Rebel Rebel

This publication was selected to go in Drawing Room’s bookshop as part of the 2024 exhibition The Time of Our Lives – Drawing Room

Rebel Rebel is the first major UK commission by Iranian artist Soheila Sokhanvari, in which she celebrates and commemorates feminist icons from pre-revolutionary Iran. For the project, Sokhanvari transforms the Curve into a devotional space, populated with 28 miniature portraits of glamorous women – from the poet Forough Farrokhzad to the singer Googoosh. Each is a labour of love, painted in the ancient technique of egg tempera with a squirrel-hair brush. This hardcover book has been published to accompany the Barbican exhibition of the same name.
