Parallel Gallery was Ahmady's concept for a nomadic art initiative that moved from venue to venue in the SoHo and NoHo neighborhoods of NYC. Ahmady curated several exhibitions, which focused mainly on presenting new media works and sound art.
As part of Parallel Gallery concept, Ahmady curated Banzai Art: Young Art Japan - an exhibition which highlighted the competitive spirit / relationship between Japan and the United States. The title "Banzai Art" is a reference to the Japanese World War II slogan "Banzai Nippon," which translates as "Go for Japan." This exhibition brought 15 contemporary Japanese artists to New York City to experience their first American showcase.
