THE SPARK IS YOU: Parasol unit in Venice

Conservatorio di Musica Benedetto Marcello di Venezia

09 May 201923 Nov 2019

Presented by: Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art, London
Curator: Dr Ziba Ardalan

“THE SPARK IS YOU: Parasol unit in Venice” exhibition of paintings, sculptures, installations, multi-media and film brings together Iranian artists of different ages, who now live and work either in or outside of Iran. Having had a similar early education and grounding in classical Persian poetry they have all benefited from thought processes that are rooted in concepts such as the use of metaphor, openness, dialogue and figurative thinking. Shown together, their works create a sense of exchange that is felt in many ways across and beyond the exhibition, not only between the art works but also in the desire of the artists to communicate with thinkers from other cultures, and finally between art and music.
