Curator’s Tea & Tours: Pantea Haghighi

Saturday, March 3, 2:00 – 4:00 pm and Saturday, March 17, 2:00 – 4:00 pm

Please join us for guided tours with curator Pantea Haghighi in both English and Farsi, to learn more about the works in Modernism in Iran. From 1958 – 1978, Iranian cultural practices underwent a dramatic transformation, signaling widespread and diverse approaches to conveying contemporary Iranian experiences. New visual languages were created, which resulted in a bifurcation of art production into a national artistic identity on the one hand, and one heavily influenced by “Westernization” on the other. Visitors are invited to learn about the experimentation and innovation in artistic practices that emerged during this time.
