DESCRIPTION

Traces of Being: Iran in the Passage of Memories explores the primacy of
personal memory against a backdrop of divergent cultural experiences and
collective histories. These memories capture more than moments in time—they
bear witness to unprecedented change and inspire new interpretations of the
past, which, in the end, create Traces of Being.

This exhibition curated by Shervin Shahbazi features new mixed media and installation-based works by Pantea Karimi, Hushidar Mortezaie, Amitis Motevalli, and Fereshteh Toosi.

We invite you to bring your own ephemera, such as written accounts, objects, or images, to add to our interactive timeline of Iran's contemporary history from 1979 to 2009.
