January 29 - May 7, 2017 - Craft & Folk Art Museum
Presented in collaboration with Farhang Foundation, Focus Iran 2 is the second juried exhibition of contemporary photography and video works relating to Iranian culture or heritage. Featuring an international selection of emerging and mid-career artists, Focus Iran 2 democratizes the art form of image making by giving novices and professionals an equal opportunity to offer distinctive visions of contemporary Iran from both inside and outside the country. This juried exhibition provides a rare collection of perspectives from citizen journalists, personal archivists, and vernacular storytellers who are connected to Iran either by heritage or deeply felt admiration.
Special thanks to presenting donors Gramian-Emrani Foundation; lead donors Ali C. & Anousheh Razi, Michael & Katy Saei; major donors Shazad & Parisma Ghanbari, Farhad & Nushin Mohit, and Roshi Rahnama.
