After three successful shows in Los Angeles, the collaborative fine arts platform, ADVOCARTSY, whose mission is to engage and raise awareness of the Iranian Contemporary Arts, welcomed over 600 guests at it’s two-day exhibition entitled, ART BRIEF IV: IRANIAN CONTEMPORARY SAN FRANCISCO at SOMArts Cultural Center. Roshi Rahnama, who founded the platform in 2015 and partnered with Moms Against Poverty for this show, is already planning more programming in Northern California after the outstanding attendance during this show.
Iranian culture was at the center of the works of art created by twenty-two talented artists, who are all of Iranian origin, and each interpreted and defined what Iranian Contemporary art meant to them. Many of the featured designers have also been on display in prominent museums, including the British Museum, Los Angeles County Museum and Berger/YSL Collection, among others. The event also welcomed Bay Area artists, including: Pouya Afshar, Afsoon, Samira Akbari, Ali Dadgar, Taraneh Hemmami, Kevah Irani, Aida Izadpanah, Shahram Karimi, Simin Keramati, Dana Nehdaran, Dariush Nehdaran, Ardalan Payvar, Bahar Sabzevari, Sepideh Salehi, Hadi Salehi, Shilla Shakoori, Rebecca Setarah, Kamran Taherimoghaddam, Taravat Talepasand, Shadi Yousefian, Farnaz Zabetian, and Avideh Zahedi.
