Talk Online | Reflections: Curator's Introduction - Venetia Porter

Online | Reflections: Curator's Introduction - Venetia Porter

Synopsis

Exhibition curator Venetia Porter presents this new exhibition of works by artists from Iran to Morocco drawn from the Museum collection.
 
Grappling with taboos, alluding to literary heritage and providing insights into history and current politics, the artists reflect on societies that have experienced extraordinary changes in living memory. Through works of complexity and beauty, from drawings and photographs to artists' books, Venetia discusses the many stories that are threaded through the exhibition.
 
The talk is introduced by Louisa Macmillan, Head of Research and Archives at Azzawi Art and a patron of CaMMEA (Contemporary and Modern Middle East art acquisitions group).
