James Gary Gallery - Bergamot Station
Saturday, October 16 ~ 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
10/16/10 to 11/14/10
Artists featured in Echoes in Blue include:
HOSSEIN KHOSROJERDI who participated in the Venice Biennial in 2003, portrays characters with no identity, struggling to maintain their Persian identity in contradiction with the imposed Islamic System.
AMIRHOSSEIN ZANJANI depicts the ruins of once spectacular historical buildings, symbols of Iranian heritage, which has been subject to destruction by the imposition of strict Islamic rules.
AHMAD MORSHEDLOO captures ordinary people in what seems to be an eternal “waiting” mode; given up, indifferent and bored; filled with ennui they are just “waiting.”
There are many other beautiful abstract and modern pieces in this exhibition, which reflect the texture of this rich culture and the existential challenges of life in Iran.
