Inner Fragments, co-curated by Mahsa Soroudi and Parisa Ghaderi (MFA ‘14), is an exhibition of sixteen Iranian female artists, most of whom live and work inside Iran. It portrays a slice of Iranian women’s lives that is profound and beyond typical clichés such as Hijab and oppression. Additionally, considering the geopolitics of Iran and the U.S., with the current administration, the exhibition aims for a greater intention, using art to transcend geographical and political boundaries. The curators are hoping to close the gap between Iran and the U.S. and highlight the new wave of contemporary Iranian art as an alternative mode of understanding modern Iran.
Exhibition Dates: February 19 — March 3rd, 2019
