The MAC will present "Woman, Life, Freedom," a group exhibition featuring works by Iranian women artists.

Since the 1979 Iranian revolution, and the deposition of former Shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the Islamic Republic has subjected their citizens to inhumane conditions. Gender apartheid, the unlawful seizure of people and goods, and mass state surveillance have been backed up by the violent Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps. The unlawful murder of Mahsa Zhina Amini for disobeying morality laws, reignited global coverage on the oppression of Iranian women.

Illinois-based artist, activist and curator Shahrbanoo Hamzeh has brought together 30+ Iranian women artists to express the oppression they and others have felt from the Iranian regime. Through art they reclaim a sense of narrative autonomy. Their stories topple the Iranian Regime’s efforts to police and smother counter-narratives. The MAC condemns acts of violence directed towards vulnerable populations and stands with the women of Iran. Amplifying the chants of protestors, Woman, Life, Freedom continues the fight for Iranian women’s freedom.

The exhibition will be on display through January 7th, 2023.
