Global/Local 1960–2015: Six Artists from Iran Past

Jan 12 to Apr 1, 2016 - New York, NY, United States

"Global/Local 1960–2015: Six Artists from Iran" features works by three generations of Iranian artists born between 1937 and 1982. The exhibition presents some ten works each by six artists—Faramarz Pilaram (1937–1983), Parviz Tanavoli (b. 1937), Chohreh Feyzdjou (1955–1996), Shiva Ahmadi (b. 1975), Shahpour Pouyan (b. 1980), and Barbad Golshiri (b. 1982)—examining their individual artistic practices through shared aspects of their Persian heritage, such as ornamentation, poetry, architecture, and Sufism. Comprising paintings, sculpture, drawings, mixed-media installations, and video, the show includes key works from NYU’s Abby Weed Grey Collection of Modern Asian and Middle Eastern Art, which comprises the largest holdings of 20th-century art from Iran outside that country. "Global/Local" illuminates how these artists have participated in international discourses, merging global with local over a 55-year span that was punctuated by the 1979 Iranian Revolution and subsequent eight-year war with Iraq. Organized by NYU’s Grey Art Gallery and curated by Lynn Gumpert, the show will be accompanied by an illustrated publication.
