Limited Edition I AM MAN T-shirt



Limited edition T-shirt made for show at USC 2018. Only amount ordered will be made.

This shirt offers buyers a way to wear I and I/Man O Man:Solidardad, a game as visual art piece created by Robert Farid Karimi to commemorate the twofold influence of the Civil Rights Movement on the Iranian Revolution of 79  as well as the influence of the Rastafarian expression of I and I

Karimi created the piece while studying Farsi, discovering words in Spanish and English that sound like Farsi. He was reading a lot about artist Glenn Ligon for his MFA thesis, saw Ligon’s rendition of the famous 1968 Santitation strike sign, and realized a way to create a new dialogue through a subtle gesture.

The artist ‘s desire was to design a shirt that would create interconnection and get people to discuss the history of U.S.-Iranian relations, which, according to the artist, still influence the majority of U.S. policy as it relates to West Asian relations.
