“Root Canal”, Samira Eskandarfar

At no point in our history of art, our artists have been closer to the issues that perplexes and engages our society, more than today. The contemporary art scene is engaged and conscious of the struggles of our nation and artists in fact draw inspiration from a society which is constantly in a state of flux. This exhibition attempts to bring out some of these contentions, a peep hole in to what we see and enjoy in Iranian Contemporary art scene.

AmitisMotevalli
Amitis Motevalli
From series “Portrait of Artist as a Rebel”.

The exhibition presents projects by three artists who use humor to explore the collusion between the camera’s lens, cultural identity and collective memory. The collection of photographs and a video installation engage the viewers to explore the mechanisms involved in engineering social perceptions.
Each artist appropriates a familiar genre (the family album, photo documentary, and video diaries/teen films) to weave a narrative that parodies western conspiracy theories and stereotypes about the Middle East. Are the strangers living among us
victims of prejudice or hostile enemies waiting to take action?

Gallery will resume normal programming by 16th August.
