June 13 – September 20, 2020
“Urban Mapping: Public Space Through the Lens of Contemporary Iranian Artists” shines a light on aspects of the Iranian experience normally hidden from the outside world by focusing on public and private spaces.
Comprised of 40 photographs and four video installations, the exhibition features the work of 10 essential voices in contemporary Iranian art who explore the notion of urban space as a nexus of social communication and political transformation; a place where personal and collective identity converge.
Organized by Allison Nance, Director of International Arts and Artists at Hillyer, and curated by Gohar Dashti. Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art presentation organized by Julia Ganas, curator of programming.
The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog.
