This event has ended.

Mohassess (b. 1938, Iran) is a self-taught artist with a philosophical sense of humor. His drawings express the ironic and absurd in the human condition as witnessed both before and after the Iranian Revolution in 1979. Since the early 1960s, his elaborate tableaux as well as his simple, raw drawings created for newspapers and magazines—including The New York Times—have been exhibited in Iran, Europe, Asia, and the United States. This exhibition focuses on monochromatic ink drawings by this legendary artist that provide unique insight into Iranian history. Some of the works have never been publicly exhibited.
