Post-Revolutionary Iranian Art Recalling the Future

Post 1979 Iranian revolution artworks by 29 Iranian artists, many exhibiting in the UK for the first time.

The artists on display reject notions of 'Iranian-ness' as a fixed, timeless entity, and investigate the social and historical construction of identity, as well as their contribution to problematic political situations.

Working across a variety of media including painting; sculpture; photography; video performance and installation pieces the artists draw attention to the building sites of Iranian national identity, with a focus on the devices and techniques through which seemingly 'traditional' narratives are reproduced and maintained in the present.

Alongside the exhibition, there will be several public events including film screenings, artist talks, and a major symposium at the Brunei Gallery, SOAS on February 1, 2014.
