Chain-melted State is an exhibition of installation and painting by Alex Jahani.
“Accustomed to their grief, their single-minded capacity for it and their astonishing perseverance in spite of it, we sometimes forget that what [artists] do is in spite of distress—not because of it.” – Arts Advocacy, The Source of Self-Regard: Selected Essays, Speeches, and Meditations, Toni Morrison.
