Pouya Afshar: The Charm of the Unfamiliar
On view through January 9, 2022
Craft Contemporary
Los Angeles, California

Pouya Afshar’s solo exhibition is a multi-media story of displacement, migration, and resiliency. Afshar has constructed an experiential world where viewers can follow the fictional journey of a group of migrants to an abandoned, amusement park-like city. Each character has been transformed, physically and emotionally, as they adapt to their new circumstances while fighting to maintain their individual personalities and characteristics.
