Aftab Book Club: Contemporary Iranian Art: From the Street to the Studio Past

Sunday, May 1, 2016 ,
3:00 PM
- Washington, DC, United States

Come and participate in our second book club of the year with Contemporary Iranian Art: From the Street to the Studio by Talinn Grigor. In the first comprehensive look at Iranian art and visual culture since the 1979 revolution, Talinn Grigor investigates the official art sponsored by the Islamic Republic, the culture of avant-garde art created in the studio and its display in galleries and museums, and the art of the Iranian diaspora within Western art scenes. Divided into three parts—street, studio, and exile—the book argues that these different areas of artistic production cannot be understood independently, revealing how this art offers a mirror of the sociopolitical turmoil that has marked Iran’s recent history.
