Soft Guerrillas in Tehran's Contemporary Art Scene
curated by Amiel Grumberg (1980-2004)
Five Iranian artists use art as a tool for the demonstration of mental and physical constructions.
In a city where 70% of the population is under 30 years old, the voice of the young generation is strong enough to have a consequential effect, but only in the long-term. Some younger artists are producing remarkable work without the possibility of showing to a large audience, thus preventing the exploration of their potential on a wider scale. Among them, Roxanna Daryadanesh, Shahab Fotouhi and Neda Razavipour, Barbad Golshiri, and Vahid Hakim provide an impressive overview of the Tehran art sceneâ€™s current quality and dynamism. Through their work, these five artists display an energetic use of art as a tool for the demonstration of mental and physical constructions.
