Roshi Rahnama

Tastemaker

Founder of The Space, Roshi Rahnama hopes her gallery will raise awareness and increase engagement of Iranian contemporary arts with the LA community and beyond -- where the other, the immigrant and the silenced can be heard. Prior to opening The Space, Rahnama worked as a lawyer with a particular focus on community transformation projects. “I think being an advocate for a cause has always been a natural role for me. You have to believe in the cause to be engaged. Successes cannot be defined by finances,” says the Advocartsy founder on a sunny morning in her gallery.
