SETAREH is pleased to present the exhibition I SEE, I AM curated by Shahram Karimi with video works by Iranian artists Shirin Abedinirad
(b. 1986, Tabriz), Samira Eskandarfar (b. 1980, Tehran) and  Mandana Moghaddam (b. 1962, Tehran) in conjunction with Düsseldorf´s Photo Weekend 2018.

Over the course of several years, Iranian cinema has established its own unique and relevant voice on the global stage. Compared to cinema, however, Iran has yet to develop an established history of video art, and the genre is still a new phenomenon for Iranian artists – only recently emerging in the ’90s. It was during this time that Shirin Neshat, an Iranian born artist, successfully straddled two cultures and received world recognition for her video, film and photography. Examining the trajectory of Iranian video art, the main question posed in this exhibition asks: What is the nature of contemporary video art as it has developed in the new millennium in Iran?

I SEE, I AM seeks to recognize artists working to shape Iran’s canon of video art. This exhibition is a product of focused research on artists who use video to demonstrate a concrete artistic individuality. The exhibition focuses three women whose works serve to illuminate patterns, changes and developments in Iranian contemporary video art. The videos further introduce character that is independent from cinema and other art genres. The artists works are not culturally explicit, but conjure cross-cultural themes.

The exhibition features a selection of video works, that are on view in the show IN-BETWEEN (Part II): SO FAR at the museum Mana Contemporary, New Jersey, since October 2017– Karimi´s second exhibition there that provides an overview of contemporary art from Iran.
