Past Exhibition / Group Show
I. U. Heart
June 24 - July 31, 2010
The Third Line presents works by Mahmoud Bakhshi, Shahab Fotouhi, Arash Hanaei, Mamali Shafahi and Vahid Sharifian that illustrate their individual responses towards how Iran’s politics and policies dominate the world’s perception of the country through a diverse selection of media.
This exhibition encased and inspired by globalisation and ambiguity, aims to identify the interaction between Iran and the US, Iranians in the US and Iranians in Iran. Through pop culture, socio-political references and a variety of media, I. U. [Heart] investigates the broader and more complex interactions between artists, history and identity.
