Artist Talk with Mohammadreza Mirzaei (MFA '14) at Sazmanab Center for Contemporary Art

On the occasion of his recent exhibition at O Gallery, Mohammadreza Mirzaei will speak about his work with a focus on his recent published photobook and his two latest exhibitions at O Gallery and No.6 Gallery in Tehran. The two exhibitions with ironic titles "New Photographs" and "Newer Photographs" featured photographs that were shot in Iran and abroad, and mostly in public places.
During the artist talk, we will have a closer look at Mirzaei’s recent book "Here Comes the Sun" published by University of Pennsylvania Common Press. The book was designed by Italian graphic designer Filippo Nostri and contains twenty one photographs, a writing by Mirzaei and an essay written by curator Carlos Basualdo.
