Punk Orientalism Curator and Artist Walkthrough

Join the MacKenzie for an afternoon exploring our latest exhibition, Punk Orientalism with curator Sara Raza, and artists Babi Badalov and Shahpour Pouyan. The walkthrough will include a facilitator who will provide Russian translation.

The artists in Punk Orientalism challenge outdated perceptions about the geography, territory, and personal and political identities of those living in Central Asia, the Caucasus, Iran and the Middle East and their International diasporas. The exhibition uses the theme of non-conformity—the “punk” rejection of state authority—to investigate and explore a changing society and its evolving norms in the post-Soviet period.
