Date: June 26
Etemad Gallery Dubai will hold a summer group exhibition entitled “Mise–en–scène”, which opens on July 4 and will run until July 28.
The exhibition brings together works of several contemporary emerging Iranian artists working with different medias. Ghazaleh Avarzamani, Pedram Baldari, Mostafa Choobtarash, Elnaz Farajollahi, Arash Fesharaki, Bahareh Navabi, Meysam Nejadrasouli, Nastaran Safaei, Leila Vismeh, Farniyaz Zaker, Pooya Razi and Sahar Safarian are the artists who will participate in this group exhibition.
The works on display vary from painterly practices to more experimental use of photography, sculpture and moving image.
In his recent works, Pooya Razi has abandoned working on canvas in favor of painting directly onto plexi-glass which are then later assembled as light boxes. Film maker Farniyaz Zaker's Puppet behind the curtain, Puppet behind the window, 2012, is a new interpretation of Sadegh Hedayat’s popular short story of the same name which tells the story of a young man who falls in love with a mannequin in a shop window. Mostafa Choobtarashʼs playful Persian-Pop paintings are a fusion of folklore with pop-Art influences.
“Mise–en–scène” will be on display from July 4 and runs until July 28, in Etemad Gallery in Dubai.
