The Voices on Art podcast continues this week with an interview with the Iraqi-American painter Vian Sora, anticipating her solo presentation with David Nolan Gallery at Independent New York 2024. Now based in Louisville, Kentucky, Sora grew up in Baghdad, enriched by the cultures of her Kurdish family and Iraq’s ancient heritage, while also experiencing persecution, war, and violence. Tune in to hear more about Sora’s determination to bring beauty out of the horrors of the past and her painterly obsessions with color, form, and texture.
