Portraits: Reflections by Emerging Iranian Artists will include paintings, photography, sculpture, mixed media, and video works by Ahmad Morshedloo, Alishia Morassaie, Arash Sedaghatkish, Babak Bidarian, Bahar Behbahani, Dadbeh Bassir, Hossein Edalatkhah, Jinoos Taghizadeh, Morteza Pourhosseini, Nasser Bakhshi, Samira Alikhanzadeh, Sepanta Ghassemkhani, among others, many of whose works have never before been exhibited in the United States.
"Despite all it's societal and political challenges of the past thirty years, which led the country into isolation, Iran has experienced an artistic revival that has defied all expectation, yet the work of most emerging artists is still unknown in the United States," say Heidari and Nader. "It is for this reason that we began this project with the hope of bringing awareness to our U.S. audience, and to familiarize them with this new body of work."
