Rooze-Mabada / For a Rainy DayFlash Art Studios
“Rooze-Mabada” [For a Rainy Day] is a group show featuring Iranian artists from different generations, curated by Gea Politi and Daniele Balice, in collaboration with the ITC agency Ethical Fashion Initiative and in partnership with the European Union. This publication includes a series of exhibition views of the show held in Milan at Giardino Segreto in October 2019 and selected works of the artists participating: Yalda Afsah, Nana Biluš Abaffy, Parvin Saljoughi, Hadi Fallapisheh, Ali Meer Azimi, Mostafa Sarabi, Behjat Sadr, Shabahang Tayyari, Manoucher Yetktai. The title is a typical expression in the country describing a particular mindset that sets aside pleasant things for a day when you can’t go out. More metaphorically, the title refers to the unique relationship of Iranian culture with the concepts of time and the future.
