I interviewed Mr Darvish for this blog a few weeks ago. This gallery saw the interview and elected to produce a show for him. If you are in the Boston area this week for the opening or through November 29 for the exhibit, be sure to check this out.
Opening Reception: 7 October 5:30-8pm Exhibition: 7 October - 29 November
Alireza Darvish is a contemporary Iranian artist currently living in Germany. Some twenty years ago, he began a series of finished watercolors and drawings exploring the metaphorical meanings of the book in the modern world, particularly in the context of totalitarian politics. Darkly surreal, whimsical, and provocative, the series is a testimony of gratitude to the freedom and hope that books offer the imagination, and a commentary on the refuge they provide. The series now numbers more than eighty works, nearly all of which are included for sale in this exhibition.
A catalogue to accompany the exhibition will be published and available from Ars Libri for $25. For more information, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone us: 617 357-5212.
The artist will be present at the 7 October opening reception.
