On view through January 17, 2021
Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art
Scottsdale, Arizona

“Urban Mapping: Public Space Through the Lens of Contemporary Iranian Artists” shines a light into the depths of the Iranian experience normally hidden from the outside world by focusing on public and private spaces. Comprising 40 photographs and four video installations, the exhibition features the work of 10 essential voices in contemporary Iranian art who explore the notion of urban space as a nexus of social communication and political transformation: a place where personal and collective identity converge.
