Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA) presents a powerful exhibition that examines the concept of public space from the perspectives of 10 Iranian artists. This exhibition shines a light into the depths of the Iranian experience normally hidden from the outside world by focusing on public and private spaces. Comprising of 40 photographs and 4 video installations, these works explore urban spaces as a nexus of social communication and political transformation. “Urban Mapping” features the work of 10 essential voices in contemporary Iranian art, which offers museumgoers a wide and varied view of life in the city. Some are among the most celebrated contemporary artists in Iran, while others are just beginning their careers — forming a fresh artistic perspective for younger generations for whom the 1978 revolution is only an inherited memory.
