My Iran: Six Women Photographers

Daily, Now - February 9, 2020
From: 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM

The artists featured in My Iran: Six Women Photographers explore the complexities of life within and outside their home country. From the dynamism of the street to the quiet corners of distant memories, the works highlight various ways in which artists use photography to respond to personal and political realities. Newsha Tavakolian and Malekeh Nayiny revisit the concept of the family photo album to reveal deeply moving individual stories. Hengameh Golestan’s shots of women protesting in the streets of Tehran following the 1979 Revolution capture the spirit and force of a social and political movement that still resonates today. Shadi Ghadirian and Gohar Dashti offer wry commentaries on post-revolutionary society, while Mitra Tabrizian composes evocative studies of displaced Iranians in London.
