Global/Local 1960–2015: Six Artists from Iran features works by three generations of Iranian artists born between 1937 and 1982 including Shiva Ahmadi, Assistant Professor of Art at UC Davis. The exhibition presents some ten works each by six artists, examining their individual artistic practices through shared aspects of their Persian heritage, such as ornamentation, poetry, architecture, and Sufism. Comprising paintings, sculpture, drawings, mixed-media installations, and video, the show includes key works from NYU’s Abby Weed Grey Collection of Modern Asian and Middle Eastern Art, which comprises the largest holdings of 20th-century art from Iran outside that country.
