"Country, Home," curated by Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell, is a group exhibition of work by differing immigrant and first-generation American artists, exploring the particular tensions and challenges of these culturally and socially under-recognized groups. No one immigrant/immigrant-born artist experience is exactly alike, and this exhibition embraces that reality and translates it into visual narrative form.

Mounted by ARC Gallery, a multimedia art exhibit that raises awareness about the different dimensions of violence against women, who communicate experiences, journeys and shifts in self-perception from victims to communicators of the phenomenon. The exhibition explores the theme of violence against women by engaging with story and experience, the psychology of abuse, survival and transformation, and the role of mass media and culture in furthering violence against women. Healthy definitions of masculinity and femininity will also be depicted along with spiritual and conceptual foundations for understanding the phenomenon.
Iran’s tumultuous history and troubled relationship with the West has, for many decades, overshadowed the wealth of culture and artistic innovation to be found there. Good News from Iran, presented by Endjavi-Barbé Art Projects in Geneva, Switzerland reveals a fresh and positive aspect to the Iranian contemporary arts scene.
'Good News from Iran' presented by Endjavi-Barbé Art Projects in Geneva, Switzerland is showing an interesting view of the Iranian contemporary arts scene.
The exhibition is presenting emerging Iranian artists: Ayda Alizadeh, Negar Fadaei, Habib Farajabadi, Melodie Hojabr Sadat, Maryam Hosseini, Elnaz Javani, Poorang Pirataei, Mohammad Piriaee, Setareh Sanjari, Ashkan Sanei and Sale Sharifi.
When we think about Iran, the rich history and inspiring art tradition of one of the oldest civilization comes to our mind. Art has always been infused in everyday life, from traditional values to contemporary explorations. But there is also another side. Iran has been also known for the invasion of foreign armies as well as the revolution. And from that point of view Iran has been often portayed as a 'bad news'.
Amir Farhad, the curator of the exhibition explains: "The 'Good News from Iran' exhibition aims to unveil another reality behind the bad news. It will not feature calligraphy and exotic art, no art featuring the chador, and no art focused on gender and protest. The goal is to show a different side of the contemporary Iranian arts scene."
Amir Farhad continues: "My purpose in gathering the works of this exhibition is to illustrate the vibrant sense of fantasy that young Iranian artists today possess. We have no intention of changing mainstream Iranian art. Simply throwing into question the viewer’s preconceived notions of Iran will suffice. 'Good News from Iran' invites viewers to take a fresh look at what is essentially a message of hope from the upcoming generation of artists."
The exhibition 'Expanding Worlds' will feature a selection of the work of three emerging contemporary artists from Iran: Maryam Ashkanian, Zahra Hosseini and Elnaz Javani that will be introduced for the first time to a European audience. The exhibition will be open from January 9 to January 26, 2012.
Their work is a refreshing departure from the well-worn clichés expected of contemporary Middle Eastern artists today. The show is designed to illustrate the dynamic and true nature of Iran’s current-day art scene.
