How do political strife, social upheaval and war impact artistic expression?
Please join Chicago Wellesley Friends of Art for a tour of the Burnt Generation: Contemporary Iranian Photography exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College led by Karen Irvine, curator and associate director of the MoCP.
See how a generation of Iranian photographers have responded to and reflected the turmoil in their country caused by the Iranian Revolution of 1979 and the eight-year Iran-Iraq War.
This exhibition of Iranian photography comes just one year after the Davis Museum at Wellesley mounted the first major museum retrospective of the important contemporary Iranian sculptor, Parviz Tanavoli. Come join FOA as we continue to learn more about Iranian art and culture.
The Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College is located at 600 South Michigan Avenue. Enter the Museum through the building lobby. No charge for this program other than the suggested admission to the Museum of $5 paid at the time of the event.
A Dutch treat dinner will follow for those interested.
