The Gallery at REDCAT becomes a platform for performances, screenings, concerts, philosophical meditations, conversations and other events throughout the three-month exhibition Hotel Theory, which explores the possibilities of theory as an art form.
Over twenty artists participate with performances or performance documentation and video, audio, photographs, posters or other related ephemera that contextualize the time-based events. Borrowing its title from Wayne Koestenbaum’s blissfully confusing book of the same name, the exhibition and series of events features a wide range of artistic disciplines, practices and points of departure.

2013, 96 mins, color, Directed by Mitra Farahani | Persian and English with English subtitles
Fifi Howls from Happiness is a documentary about the elusive, so-called "Persian Picasso," Bahman Mohassess, whose work dominated pre-revolutionary Iran. When Farahani finds the renowned artist, who went into voluntary exile in Rome, she is unaware that she will be filming the last months of his life. The man, taken for dead by most people, demonstrates a Pasolini-like mix of vivacity and despair, as embodied by his painting Fifi Howls from Happiness, one of the few works he did not destroy. Through a series of interviews with Farahani and meetings with two artists who commission a painting from him, the film explores Mohassess’ iconoclastic art as well as his conflicted relationship with his homeland. Mohassess treats the film-in-the-making as a self-portrait that is under his own control and closes with what the artist would triumphantly call his “final performance.” Director Mitra Farahani participates in a Q&A following the screening.
