ZENDEGI: TWELVE CONTEMPORARY IRANIAN ARTISTS (2011)
Published to accompany an exhibition by Rose Issa Projects at the Beirut Exhibition Center in Lebanon, ‘Zendegi’ features the work of twelve contemporary Iranian artists: Maliheh Afnan, Farhad Ahrania, Mohamed Ehsai, Monir Farmanfarmaian, Parastou Forouhar, Shadi Ghadirian, Bita Ghezelayagh, Taraneh Hemami, Abbas Kiarostami, Farhad Moshiri, Najaf Shokri and Mitra Tabrizian.
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. Whether living inside or outside Iran, they reflect on the exceptional as well as the ordinary events of daily life.
