Farrah Karapetian

Farrah Karapetian installed Good Sign (2013) on a disused liquor store billboard in the Grand Traverse district for the Free City festival. Karapetian is an artist who works with cameraless photography and sculpture. She lives and works in Los Angeles, where she exhibits with the Roberts & Tilton and LeadApron galleries, and is the winner of a Creative Capital/ Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant. Karapetian believes that art makes meaning in conversation: between artworks, between people who have devoted their lives to art, and between people who have not. At this time, she takes very seriously the power of writing, curating, teaching, material experiment, and research to create the connections between things and people that reveal their significance. These activities and others – including travel, commercial collaborations, mundane tasks, and meeting you – are all a part of what inspires her work.
