Anonymouslyاز Iran: An Exhibition Amplifying the Voices of Iranian Women
Since the murder of Jina (Mahsa) Amini, the global art community has taken an active and important role in support of the “Woman Life Freedom” movement in Iran. Iranian women are leading the fight against an aging theocratic regime clinging to power. While the authoritarian regime has sought to subdue the Iranian people and its culture, it is Iranians that are quelling the regime.
Art has been a form of resistance. We have witnessed artists, curators, museums, and galleries worldwide show their solidarity by creating, partnering and providing avenues to raise awareness of the ongoing revolution.
The aim of this exhibition is to amplify the voice of Iranians who are and have been bravely defying tyranny and protesting for their freedoms through the lens of art. This exhibition, featuring sculptures, installations, paintings, digital media, and performance art, is a celebration of the incredibly courageous Iranian people, especially the women of Iran, and its culture.
In solidarity with the artists and people of Iran, due to the current oppressive climate in Iran, and the risks protesters, artists and their families face, all work from all artists (inside and outside of Iran) will be exhibited anonymously.
