December 4, 2020 - 18:49

Note: Following art exhibitions are being organized online in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus.


* Mohsen Gallery is playing host to an exhibition of artworks in various media by Sassan Abari from Iran, and Anita Steinwidder and Peter Garmusch from Austria.

The exhibition named “Quarantarium” will run until December 31 on the gallery’s website https://mohsen.gallery/exhibitions/quarantarium. Nirvana Parvizi is the curator of the showcase.

In its statement for the exhibition, the gallery wrote, “The word “Quarantarium” is a coined word, consisting of “quarantine” and “aquarium”: containers that are enclosed with extreme care and discipline to preserve things. The former is bound by a rigid membrane and the latter is defined by translucent walls; yet, both are kept away from the community of others.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has forced people to lock themselves inside their houses, reducing all their interactions and socialization to the screens of their smartphones and computers. Even though pandemics are experienced individually and personally, they create a global, collective panic.”
