More About the Exhibition
Regarding Iran the apparent acquiescence of conceptual poetics curated by Shaheen Merali, is the third exhibition of an ongoing curatorial initiative that has so far been produced in two different countries. Thus far, the curator, Shaheen Merali, has worked with Kunsthalle Brot, Vienna for The Promise of Loss and at the Tokyo Gallery for The Stalking of Absence, to present work by artists that investigates and provides a generous account of Iran’s contemporary situation. The aesthetic inventions of these artists provide exciting probabilities for an inquiring audience to develop an understanding of issues pertaining to Iran and its contested place in the world. The eight artists’ work from within and without Iran is presented as a medium scale group exhibition opening close to the occasion of the Persian new year; Norouz.
