"Zendegi" in Persian means "Life". This first major group show of contemporary Iranian artists in Beirut sheds light on life and art in Iran as seen through the eyes of several of its most prominent and emerging artists. Coming from different generations, and using diverse media, they present, investigate and interpret current themes and issues of relevance through their own aesthetic language, merging tradition with modernity.
