I've passed by Dar Al Fuoon yesterday to check out an exhibition curated by Simin Dehghani titled Neither Here Nor There. The exhibition brings together the work of Iranian artists Peyman Houshmandzadeh, Nima Alizdeh, Shantia Zakerameli, Adel Younesi, Rosita Sharafjahan, and Afshin Chizari whom each express displacement, culture shock, denial, and other psychological reactions to the environment in which their subjects have suddenly found themselves. My favorite pieces were by Rosita Sharafjahan where she used a series embroidery on printed fabric (shown here below and the first photo). My second favorite pieces were the oil on canvas paintings by Adel Younesi. If you have the time today, go check it out. The event will be on until May 19th.
