Looking-Looking Away : Mohsen Meysami

6 Apr 2019 - 19 May 2019

In this exhibition, Mohsen Meysami places the question of “indifference” at the centre of his art practice. Drawing his viewers’ attention to the destructive impacts of war, he calls on them to re-think and engage, directly and critically. For this, he draws on the philosophical and psychological theories that examine the causes of indifference.
