We were interested to see how we could see each other as individuals, as artists, and put away whatever is going on right now with our governments, says Iranian-born, Denver-based artist Morehshin Allahyari, who coordinated the project. I think thats the most important thing, to work together and learn through this process of art-making.
An opening reception with the artists the locals in person, the Iranians via tele-presence starts at 6 p.m. at Andenken Gallery, 2990 Larimer Street. A closing reception will take place March 28 at 5 p.m. For more info, call 303-941-8434 or visit www.irusart.org.
