The Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago is hosting two photography exhibitions featuring Iran as its focal point. “Burnt Generation: Contemporary Iranian Photography” and “Midwest Photographers Project: Hossein Fatemi” show the complexities of Iran and its people using photography as its medium.
Hossein Fatemi aims to dispel the harmful stereotypes of Iran and its people by documenting and showcasing their lives.
The exhibition runs until July 10th. If you are in the area, it is definitely worth a look. The exhibition will have a series of events to accompany it like video playlists and artist talks. Check out the calendars here and here.
