It's not possible to define a Persian carpet without taking into account the symmetric distribution of its interior garden. With this in mind, we will talk to Ali Emadi and, together with Tere Recarens, we will reveal yet another mystery of the Baharestan carpet.

Ali Emadi (1982, Isfahan, Iran) received his master’s degree in Architecture in 2009. His main focus was the history of Iranian architecture and how to use sustainable technology in the modern world. He has exhibited his sketches in solo exhibitions in Isfahan. He is currently working at UPC for the department of architecture as a Ph.D. candidate in Barcelona, Spain, in 2023.

The programme Let’s talk about... generates discussions on the Museum’s exhibitions between the different agents and artists in the city and our regular public. It is a meeting point that regards exhibitions as powerful devices capable of activating the imagination and generators of discourses that often go beyond the preconceived readings of the institution or the curatorial team. On this occasion, Tere Recarens will be curating the activity around her own work Baharestan carpet (Spring carpet), which is currently included in the exhibition MACBA Collection. Prelude. Poetic intention.
