ADVOCARTSY presents its fourth public initiative of a multi-artist show entitled ART BRIEF IV: IRANIAN CONTEMPORARY SAN FRANCISCO and thus expands its efforts to Northern California.
ADVOCARTSY is proud to collaborate with Moms Against Poverty (MAP) as its official community and fundraising partner for this event. This collaboration will bring about Northern California’s support of the Iranian art community as we fundraise for MAP’s important and inspiring mission. MAP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2008 by a group of individuals, who believe that, every child deserves a chance to thrive in this world regardless of where they are born.

Ten percent (10%) of net sales during this event will be donated to MAP.
ART BRIEF II: IRANIAN CONTEMPORARY SAN FRANCISCO explores the diverse ways artists of Iranian background in diaspora create and define ‘Iranian Contemporary Art’. The works exhibited speak to the various artistic reactions and reflections to the realities of identity formation in diaspora, the pain and joy of exile, the call of nostalgia, and the fragmentation of the self. The list of participating artists will be announced soon.
