Shulamit Gallery

For Export Only

17 North Venice Blvd   10AM-8PM

Shulamit Gallery is pleased to present For Export Only a group exhibition of new and recent works by four Iranian artists: Shahab Fotouhi, Sanaz Mazinani, Mamali Shafahi and Kamran Sharif. For Export Only explores the tension these artists face with their cultural identity and diasporic-based experiences. The exhibit features a colorful and vibrant assortment of media including photography, sculpture, bronze, fabric, wallpaper and video installation. Works in the exhibition represent a variety of cultural expressions from politically poignant moments to personal reflections of childhood memories. The result is divergent viewpoints revealing how these artists transcend socio-political experiences as they adjust to new cultural environments around the world.
