Iran's Contemporary Art Comes to New York

U2 guitarist The Edge and actress Gina Gershon came to New York’s Lower East Side to support Iranian artists in a new group exhibition, 1001 Colors: Contemporary Art From Iran. The show, which features 24 Iranian artists, some of who are showing their work outside of their home country for the first time, was curated by Nina Seirafi, who hand-picked the exhibition's 50 pieces.
