Event Description

Under the Shade of the Lotus Tree: Pari Azarm Motamedi and Rozita Moinishirazi is an exhibition that delves into the deep impact of leaving one's homeland and the need for a connection to one's roots. This show explores the power of Persian poetry as a foundation of cultural preservation and self-expression via the works of Persian-Canadian artists Pari Azarm Motamedi and Rozita Moinishirazi. Motamedi and Moinishirazi expertly translate and modernize classic Persian symbols, and stories, uncovering hidden messages in poems and tackling socio-political challenges in their nation. These artists inspire us to consider the complications of displacement and the everlasting value of art in bridging cultural barriers with powerful vision and elegant brushwork.

Organized by the West Vancouver Art Museum.
Curated by Hilary Letwin and Anahita Ranjbar.

Free & open to the public.
