About this event

What impact have sanctions had on Iran’s artists and world? Join us for a talk with Sreberny-Mohammadi who tracked two decades of art activity, charting sanctions alongside art exhibitions & other events across the art world of Iran & its diaspora to enumerate the consequences of sanctions on Iran’s visual arts. Professor Talinn Gregor will moderate the session.
