Here we have hijacked this September issue of Selections Magazine with approximately 126 pages of images from some 64 Iranian artists who are content to connect to the world through their images: visual dialogue.
Curator’s statement :
Artist’s statements have always been for me a defensive move: a justification.
Artists’ connect with the world through their art. Here are some 50 Iranian artists who have agreed to communicate with you through their two page visual spread in this HIJACKED ISSUE. Words are the language of the mind, and the intellect: visual dialogue is the language of everything else. Statements have always been for me an attempt to justify works for being : there is no justification for what is. Art is useless but essential.
