Pouya Afshar
The Charm of the Unfamiliar

Craft Contemporary Museum – Los Angeles

Exhibition Dates: October 3rd, 2021 – January 9th, 2022

About the Exhibition

Pouya Afshar’s solo exhibition is a multi-media story of displacement, migration, and resiliency. Afshar has constructed an experiential world where viewers can follow the fictional journey of a group of migrants to an abandoned, amusement park-like city. Each character has been transformed, physically and emotionally, as they adapt to their new circumstances while fighting to maintain their individual personalities and characteristics.

This exhibition was made possible in part by The Antonia and Vladimer Kulaev Cultural Heritage Fund.
