Anonymouslyاز Iran

An Exhibition Amplifying the Voices of Iranian Women

On view: February 9 - March 26

Opening Reception: February 9, 6-9pm.


Gallery hours: Thursday & Friday, 5-9pm, and Saturday & Sunday, 2-9pm.

Since the murder of Jina (Mahsa) Amini, the global art community has taken an active and important role in support of the “Woman Life Freedom” movement in Iran. Iranian women are leading the fight against an aging theocratic regime clinging to power. While the authoritarian regime has sought to subdue the Iranian people and its culture, it is Iranians that are quelling the regime.

​Art has been a form of resistance. We have witnessed artists, curators, museums, and galleries worldwide show their solidarity by creating, partnering and providing avenues to raise awareness of the ongoing revolution.

The aim of this exhibition is to amplify the voice of Iranians who are and have been bravely defying tyranny and protesting for their freedoms through the lens of art.

This exhibition, featuring sculptures, installations, paintings, digital media, and performance art, is a celebration of the incredibly courageous Iranian people, especially the women of Iran, and its culture.


In solidarity with the artists and people of Iran, due to the current oppressive climate in Iran, and the risks protesters, artists and their families face, all work from all artists (inside and outside of Iran) will be exhibited anonymously.

Free Admission.

Queer Conversations

Film Screening and Panel Discussion

Gracefully tells the story of a drag queen who had been performing on stage for decades up until the 1979 Iranian Revolution.

Past Tense/Future Infinite


Exhibition on view April 1-30 during gallery hours: Thursday & Friday, 5-9pm, and Saturday & Sunday, 2-9pm.


Art that reflects a new sensibility as we look toward the future with what we learned from these years of isolation. Humankind is looking ahead toward the future with a guarded sense of responsibility learned from the past. The pandemic revealed many hidden truths. It also taught us to seek our peace from within ourselves along with patience and contemplation. Cut off, we learned to be still and reflect. For some of us it was a time of fear, loneliness and separation. For others, it created an opportunity to be alone and discover ourselves—our strengths and our weaknesses. The works in this exhibition are related to that pause in time in which our confinement opened up a portal. You are invited to enter into this realm of balance, tranquility, and introspection.

News From Somewhere

by Tomek Miernowski


On view May 4-28 during gallery hours: Thursday & Friday, 5-9pm, and Saturday & Sunday, 2-9pm.

Opening Reception May 4, 6-9pm


News from Somewhere is a multimedia art installation that aims to provoke reflection upon social structures and power dynamics.


Using a touchscreen, the audience selects from a numbered list of societies and is immersed in the sonic results of a social study conducted by five world-class improvisers involved in movements for social justice, each of whom has chosen the sound arts as their primary form of artistic expression. The result is non-musical and anti-aesthetical; a sonic bridge that links the idea of society with physical creative collaboration, mutual aid, and evolution.

Today’s rapid environmental degradation and social upheavals demand new systems. The first step toward a new world is imagining it.
