Art has the power to communicate a better understanding of our differences and therefore create a connection.

Persia (Iran), is an extraordinary land that evokes different feelings when mentioned… different for those who focus on its politics, and different for those who focus on its art, history, and culture, therefore, it is largely misunderstood.

Artists represented:
Shiva Pakdel, Afshin Shirazian, Amir Rahimi, Bahram Dabiri, Mehri Dadgar, Reza Azimian, Mobina Nouri, Haleh Douraghy, Jaleh Etemad, Farnaz Zabetian as the “Persian Visual Arts Collective”
