The Village-based IAIA presents the first institutional solo exhibition of Behjat Sadr (1924–2009) in the United States. From the IAIA: “The exhibition unveils Sadr’s diverse practice, which spanned painting, photography, photomontage and kinetics. Born in Arāk, Iran, Behjat broke through the male-dominated pre-Revolutionary Iranian art world, establishing herself as one of the foremost artists of the 20th century with her biomorphic gestural abstractions that defied the status-quo. This exhibition explores Sadr’s engagement with painting by unearthing the deep and inherent relationship between body, memory and medium.”
