Persepolis: Word and Image

0

January 21 – March 16, 2014
A UConn Reads Exhibition

Inspired by both the format and content of Persepolis, the graphic novel and coming-of-age memoir by Marjane Satrapi, Persepolis: Word & Imagedraws from the Benton’s permanent collection to present some of the ways that text and art have functioned historically. Also featured are works on loan from several contemporary Iranian artists, including Pouran Jinchi, Shirin Neshat, Afarin Rahmanifar, and Hadieh Shafie, for whom text is intrinsic to their practice.

Persepolis: Word & Image is supported by the UConn Reads Steering Committee and Leila Heller Gallery, NYC.
