Amateur Thief


Open Now at Nexus Arts Gallery

Thieves typically fall into two groups: amateurs and professionals. The professionals work in teams – with systems in place that guarantee their success, while the amateur thief takes what they can get. 

Amateur Thief sees artists Aida Azin and Tara Rowhani-Farid consider cultural practices disrupted, appropriated, stolen and recovered.
