Following the universal theme of voyage\, the first major Ca nadian group exhibition of contemporary artists from the Middle Eastern reg ion arrives at MOA in Spring of 2013. Guest curated by Fereshteh Daftari\, formerly of MoMA\, Safar/Voyage’s scope takes viewers from the planet earth \, down to maps\, and further to specific cities such as Tehran and Cairo\, after which it proceeds to reveal internal and meditative spaces\, from em otional and existential to spiritual imaginings. Using a wide range of medi a\, from painting and sculpture to video and audio installations\, the jour ney acknowledges the realities of war\, revolution\, and migrant conditions \, as well as the engagement of artists with cultures outside the Middle Ea st.
