Reworking traditional materials into contemporary textiles, Sara Rahbar mines her Iranian-American cultural heritage to explore issues of memory, identity, and dislocation. Born in Tehran, Rahbar and her family were forced to leave during the upheaval in the country following the Iranian revolution. Rahbar’s flag series (2005–11)—collaged textile incarnations of American and Iranian flags that include fragments of fabrics, carpets, and fringes—has gained her international recognition. “I began as a painter,” she has said, “and I still feel like a painter—only now it’s with textiles.” For her “War Series” (2008–10), she created collages with military paraphernalia such as holsters, bullets, and water canteens. Rahbar has also produced sculpture and photography.
