The Queens Museum of Art has mounted an art exhibition featuring artists from the Middle East and Central Asia in New York.
Translation displays contemporary art works from Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Morocco, Turkey, Palestine, Kazakhstan, Lebanon and Afghanistan.
Nazgol Ansarinia, Pouran Jinchi, Farhad Moshiri, Solmaz Shahbazi and Mitra Tabrizian are the Iranian artists whose works have been exhibited at the event.
Translation, which will run until Sep 27, 2009, held a New Video Art showcase on May 17 and is set to hold a Central Asian Cinema series on September 26.
According to the museum's website, the exhibition examines the different ways with which artists engage with people, objects, images, and ideas traveling across geographic spaces, media forms, histories, and personal contexts.
Translation is organized by ArteEast and sponsored by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the New York State Council on the Arts, the British Council and the A. M. Qattan Foundation.
