Number of Works: 60

Curator: Hamid Severi, professor of Art History and Theory, at Tehran University and Gary Hallman, Associate Professor at the University of Minnesota?s Regis Center for Art

Organized by: The University of Minnesota in conjunction with the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, Iran.

The twenty artists in the exhibition are among Iran?s most celebrated photographers, all of whom use the medium for cultural expression and self-exploration. Many of the artists are well known throughout Europe where they have extensively exhibited their works. Several of these artists have lived abroad and experienced western culture before returning to Iran to document their own culture. This perspective of life in Iran contradicts the way many foreign photographers use the medium: to represent Iran and its people as purely exotic.
