New CIA building taking shape; set for December completion

The Accident: Recent Work by Nicky Nodjoumi will introduce Cleveland art lovers to this internationally acclaimed New York-based artist with eight large-scale paintings and ink-on-paper drawings and two public presentations by the artist.
While referencing ancient and recent history in Iran, Nodjoumi’s works have a wide appeal. “There are not only Iranians or Americans in the paintings, but each situation, each event is universal,” said Reinberger Galleries Director Bruce Checefsky. “Nicky's work is easily accessible. He presents a global perspective. Abuse of power and corruption are not limited to either Iran or the United States. His paintings are cross-cultural and open-ended.”
In February, Checefsky interviewed Nodjoumi, and a transcript of their conversation is available here.
Nodjoumi’s work is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the British Museum in London, the Salsali Private Museum in Dubai, and the National Museum of Cuba.
On Friday, March 28, Nodjoumi will present a public lecture at 12:15pm. as part of CIA's Lunch On Fridays (LOF) series. At 5:00pm, Checefsky will interview Nodjoumi before a live audience. Following that, a public reception will take place from 6-8pm in the Reinberger Galleries. All of these events take place in CIA's Gund Building at 11141 East Boulevard, Cleveland. Free parking will be available in the lot behind the building.
