Don't miss Artist Talk with Taraneh Hemami and slide presentation with Sana Makhoul this Saturday June 16th at 2pm. Taraneh Hemami's solo exhibition "Most Wanted" in San Francisco's Intersection for the Arts (ends June 30, 2007) investigates the nature of perception, recognition, and representation while examining the construction of Most wanted.
