The New Winds

Contemporary Iranian Design Exhibit
Mon Apr 30, 2018
8:00 am - 7:00 pm

College of San Mateo presents “The New Winds”, an exhibition of contemporary Iranian graphic design co-curated by Majid Abbasi and Olga Severina. Come and discover the work of world-renowned masters such as Reza Abedeni, Homa Delvaray, Aria Kasaei, Saed Meshkiand, and others. The show features 44 posters inspired by traditional Persian and Arabic calligraphy, art, and Islamic patterns.

The majority of the posters was created for Iranian art exhibitions, cultural organizations, and events. While combining Western design fundamentals with the elements of traditional Middle Eastern culture, present-day Iranian designers are making an important contribution to the world of design, by creating their own, unique visual language. This exhibition strives to create bridges of cultural understanding by giving an American audience a rare opportunity to get a deeper insight into Iranian identity.

This show was made possible with the help of Neshan, Vije School of Visual Communication, CSM Library, and the CSM Innovation Grant Committee.
