Didaar Art Collective | A Group Exhibition Curated by Leili Adibfar

Reception and Gallery Talk: November 3, 7-9pm

Didaar, meaning “meet-up” in Persian, is an art collective established in April 2018 in Chicago with the aim to promote and practice discussion, communication, and collaboration among Iranian artists, art historians, and those active in the field of Iranian arts. 

Didaar Art Collective held its first exhibition, Space: Chapter One, in April-May 2021 at Oliva Gallery (Chicago) as part of an investigation of the representations of space in the visual arts. Bringing together selected drawings and non-photographic print media such as etching, lithography, drypoint, and monotype, this juried show exhibited the practices of a group of emerging Iranian artists. The range of the works selected for the show visualized the perception or an idea of space in its personal and social connotations in addition to its usual physical and phenomenological attributes.  

In continuation with the ongoing inquiry into the theme of space, Didaar Art Collective will hold its second exhibition, Space: Chapter Two. This show is a group exhibition that focuses on architectural representations in the works of visual art across different media.
