Another 100 Colorado Creatives: Laleh Mehran

Laleh Mehran, "Entropic Order," interactive installation, 2011.

What's on your agenda in the coming year?

I'm excited to show my "Entropic Order" piece at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities. The interactive installation is large with over one ton of black beauty sand, so needless to say it's complicated to install. The centerpiece is a twelve-by-sixteen-foot drawing machine designed and fabricated by Chris Coleman. Following this exhibition, I'll be in China for an artist residency and workshops.

In late summer, I'll be in Taipei, Taiwan exhibiting a couple of works, including Chris's and my collaborative project, "W3FI," which will be shown at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts. In late fall, we will be exhibiting "W3FI" for the International Symposium on Electronic Art in Dubai.

In early fall, as part of the Denver Digerati series, I will show my new video "Dominant Policy," on the digital billboard at 14th and Champa streets. Also in the fall, the same video will be exhibited in the Electronic Language International Festival in Sao Paulo.

Who do you think will get noticed in the local art community in 2014?

I believe that more experimental and digital artists will be noticed -- like Kristin Stransky. I also think that Collin Parson at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities is doing an incredible job expanding notions of contemporary art for the community.

See Laleh Mehran's installation "Entropic Order," part of Unbound, a series of exhibits opening tonight, June 5, with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Arvada Center. "Entropic Order" remains on view through August 31. Learn more about Laleh Mehran online.

Throughout the year, we'll be shining the spotlight on 100 superstars from Denver's rich creative community. Stay tuned to Show and Tell for more, or visit the 100 Colorado Creatives archive to catch up.
