Iranian Group Exhibition, June 30th - July 26th 2016
Varying and different points of view within international politics have played a
part in our interpretation and understanding of the region known as the Middle East.
Western nations are often unaware of the rich cultural heritage the region possesses. For
instance, despite recent decades of separation, the silk roads have long connected Middle
Eastern countries and the Western nations. In recent years, an effort has been made to try
to reconnect, and build a bridge from Iran to the outside world.
In this historical moment, this outstanding group of artists will define their idea of
what home means to them. Geological, political, and sociological ideologies all
contribute and carry weight and define what “home” means to everyone within the global
society. Home is where you become who you are. Home is where the essence of who you
are as a being originates, and is where you see your true self for the first time. The stories
told within this exhibition move these ideas of home from their origins, and forward into
the world beyond.
