CHRI: Benefit Auction 2019
Artsy x The Center for Human Rights in Iran present: CHRI: Benefit Auction 2019
The exhibit is organized by the New York-based nonprofit, the Center for Human Rights in Iran, and part of the proceeds will benefit the Center's Arts & Culture and Disability Rights programs. “A Bridge Between You and Everything,” curated by the internationally acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Shirin Neshat, features the work of thirteen contemporary Iranian women artists, both established and rising stars, who began working in the aftermath of Iran’s 1979 revolution. The exhibition showcases the richness of contemporary Iranian art and the ability of these women to communicate vital and universal themes of identity and gender through their artistic vision. It features nearly 100 works--paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography and video--by artists Ala Dehghan, Afruz Amighi, Afsoon, Bahar Sabzevari, Hadieh Shafie, Laleh Khorramian, Nazanin Noroozi, Parastou Forouhar, Roya Farassat, Sepideh Salehi, Shahrzad Changalvaee, Shiva Ahmadi, and Soudeh Davoud.
The exhibition of these works at High Line Nine will conclude on December 15th. Shipment of the works to the winning bidders will be arranged after this date with the organization.
Bidding on the silent auction is open exclusively on Artsy and will close on Wednesday, November 20th at 5:00pm ET.
