NYC, do you love art? Women’s rights? Please join us at this incredible art exhibition in support of @centerforhumanrights.
Join us at our upcoming exhibition of 13 contemporary Iranian women artists in New York City, curated by the internationally acclaimed artist @Shirin__Neshat. The show, "A Bridge Between You and Everything," features nearly 100 works—paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography and video—by both established and emerging artists, who began working after Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution. The exhibition is organized by the Center. “At a time when the Western world is shining a spotlight on women’s issues and equality, it’s vital that we use this moment of the public imagination to empower dialogues from women and immigrant artists who have, and likely still continue to experience forms of repression, both in the extreme and every day,” curator Shirin Neshat said. “This exhibit showcases the richness of contemporary Iranian art and the ability of these women to communicate vital and universal themes of identity and gender through their artistic vision,” added Hadi Ghaemi, executive director of the Center for Human Rights in Iran.⠀
A full-color catalogue featuring the work of the artists, a forward by Shirin Neshat and extended excerpts from an intimate conversation between Ms. Neshat and the show’s artists will be available for sale at the exhibition.⠀
The show will run from November 7-24, 2019 at the High Line Nine gallery in Chelsea, New York.⠀
Partial proceeds from the sales of art from A Bridge Between You and Everything will benefit the Center’s Arts and Culture program, which seeks to promote artistic freedom and cross-cultural understanding, and its Disabilities Rights program.⠀
