  • Cynical Gaze
    Group Exhibition
    22 December, 2023 | 12 January, 2024

    The exhibition “Cynical Gaze” challenges the viewer’s cold and distrustful perspective towards the curation of an art exhibition. There is an incomprehensible element in the viewer’s gaze, both captivated and judgmental, connecting the entirety of an exhibition, the audience, arrangement, curator, and critic like the beads of a rosary. Finding an articulate way to analyze and critique an exhibition by a viewer that neither conveys ambiguity and bias during the visit nor establishes a fresh path for examining the idea, concept, and arrangement of an exhibition, while maintaining a fluid and open connection with the environment, requires a balance that we continually strive to educate ourselves for.
    This exhibition assembles a network of ambiguous entities, gathering various physical and meaningful characteristics into a flexible state. Industrial storage shelves, sculptures, workbooks, and rolls of paper with different drawings are all integrated into this display. Sculptures, paintings, collages, and notebooks are meticulously intertwined, forming a cohesive whole. “Cynical Gaze” from 22 December, 2023 to 12 January, 2024, exhibit at Soo Contemporary works by Dorsa Asadi, Mohsen Fouladpour, Ofogh Hosseini, Mina Mirzaei, Nafiseh Moeini, Zeinab Mousavi, and Hossein Tadi.
