In view of the recent political tensions in Iran , this is a timely exhibition for shifting the focus and highlighting the developing art scene coming from this region. Janet Rady together with renown curator writer and art critic Edward Lucie Smith has chosen to represent Fereydoun Ave, Mitra Farahani, Ramin Haerizadeh, Narmine Sadeg, Nikoo Tarkhani in a show at Werkstatt Gallery in Berlin, with works that currently would be banned in its country of origin because of the imposed ban on representing nudity and visual eroticsim publicly. The artists in the show do not live permanently in Iran but operate on the international art scene. But when I look at the work proposed, there is no doubt that each of the artists are working toward presenting an Iranian identity within their work and reference in Iran’s rich cultural and poetic history. On view will be a courageous and visually striking display of visual art addressing taboo’s in the face of Iranian people present struggle with “the judges of morality.” Three woman and two men artists who each offer a very different approach to the subject and throw open new meanings and questions about the relationship of the body and mind in their contribution to the rapidly changing cultural milieu in both Iran and the international art stage.
Janet Rady Fine Art represents some of the best and exciting artists emerging out of Iran today. This exhibition promises to be a treat by way of artistic accomplishments and intellectual inspiration.
