Beyond the Ban: Contemporary Iranian Art
June 14 – August 30, 2017 | Opening Reception: June 14, 2017
Beyond the Ban
is a group exhibition showcasing the work of leading Iranian artists based in the United States. It features painting, photography and prints by such luminaries as Shirin Neshat, Nicky Nodjoumi, Nahid Hagigat, Shoja Azari, Shahram Karimi, Jason Noushin, Afshin Naghouni, Nazanin Noroozi, Raha Raissnia and Hossein Fatemi.
American Art has thrived through the contribution of its immigrants. Beyond the Ban
celebrates this dynamic tradition of diversity in American art by showcasing the stunning contributions of one of the immigrant groups targeted by President Trump’s travel ban.
Proceeds will benefit the Center for Human Rights in Iran,
a non-profit based in New York City. The exhibit demonstrates the rich stylistic and thematic variety of art being produced today by the vibrant community of Iranian artists living in the US.
