LACMA has acquired two 16th century Persian carpets that are going to be on display for two months and Levantine Cultural Center, SociArts and the Farhang Foundation wanted to encourage the community to come and see those carpets and enjoy an artistic event about Persian carpets.
This event is called Imaginary Knots which starts with a musical performance by the beautiful Mamak Khadem ensemble and ends with a multimedia performance with seven acts of dance, video art, and live music. We have been working on this performance for the past three months, which has been an extraordinary experience enabled by a generous grant from the Farhang Foundation and LACMA's ongoing love for Persian/ Iranian art.
November 24th will be the premier of Imaginary Knots in the United States, so come and see this performance first hand.
This is a free event and open to public. Tickets will be available at 6 PM, 2 tickets per person limit on a first come first served basis. Please arrive early to get your tickets and see the two carpets before the show, which starts at 7 PM Sharp. Doors open at 6.
