Breaking Barriers: The Art of Iran
April 7 @ 11:00 am - April 28 @ 5:00 pmhttps://www.sausalitocenterforthearts.org/breaking
Art transcends language and cultural barriers; it has the power to connect people by revealing their similarities and shared humanity, thereby transforming prejudice into understanding.
Persia (Iran) is an extraordinary land with a deep cultural history that evokes different feelings in different people. Those who focus on its history and art, and those who might only associate Iran with its none-too-appealing political image gleaned from the media or the extreme vicissitude of trying to revolt against an oppressive regime.
This exhibition celebrates the cultural side of Iran and focuses on its distinctive art and imagery from the past and present. It intends to showcase a compelling sampling of the scope and range of Persian art and artists that helps transcend the constraints of ideological and cultural borders.
More than 100 works will be on display, ranging from antique art, artifacts, textiles, ceramic, and photographs, to works by contemporary Iranian artists living in the US and Iran.
