The curator of the exhibition is Fery Malek – Madani (art historian) who selected 70 creations of young artists among 400 participants. The three basic criteria of the selection were: the permanent residence of the artists in Iran, their birth date between 1971 and 1991 and, at least, one personal exhibition at their curriculum vitae.
The selection had also taken into consideration the freedom of expression and the participating artists show their unique way of creating through their paintings, videos or installations and despite religious conservatism, inequalities in rights and anti-western culture.
The female artists use symbols and parables as secret weapons against the censorship and this restriction allows them to present in various topics, techniques and materials their quest for freedom of speech.
The exhibition UNEXPOSED was presented with great success in Brussels, in November 2012. After Athens, it will travel to Warsaw (April – May 2013).
