MoMA Responds to Travel Ban by Showcasing Artists From Banned Countries #ArtTuesday

via My Modern Met

Curators from several departments within MoMA planned, organized, and executed the rehang, which has culminated in the interspersed installation of 8 works by Arab artists from Iran (Marcos GrigorianTala MadaniParviz TanavoliSiah ArmajaniShirana Shahbazi and Charles Hossein Zenderoudi), Iraq (Zaha Hadid), and Sudan (Charles Hossein Zenderoudi). The pieces—which span sculpture, painting, works on paper, video art, and even an earthwork—have temporarily replaced well-known pieces from the permanent collection, and are scattered throughout the museum’s fifth floor.

“The idea was to be inclusive and not disruptive,” Christophe Cherix, the chief curator of drawings and prints, told Hyperallergic. “We wanted to have one in each room to create a rhythm. It was more this idea of embracing those works within our tradition, within the narrative of our collection, within our values.” Though Syria, Libya, and Somalia—the other 3 countries targeted by the ban—are not yet represented in the rehang, curators aim to include art from the remaining regions throughout the month.
