About the Curators: 

Mahsa Soroudi headshot.

Mahsa Soroudi is an artist and independent art curator who is interested in interdisciplinary topics that can evolve into thought-provoking and meaningful exhibitions as well as be case studies that exist beyond the exhibition for further exploration.  She is also passionate about taking steps towards familiarizing the community with the contemporary artists who may gone disregarded or unseen due to the absence of fair exposures. In the recent years, she’s been concerned about how contemporary Iranian art is being showcased in other countries and to what extent these expositions have presented Iranian
contemporary art unaffected by popular stereotypes. “7500 Miles” refers to the distance
between California, where she currently lives, and her hometown Tehran. With this particular
project, she feels highly responsible for creating an accurate depiction of a group of Iranian
female artists and their distinctive art practice which has developed through their tireless effort,
regardless of all the challenges and complications.

Parisa Ghaderi headshot.

Parisa Ghaderi is a visual artist and filmmaker. She earned her BA in Visual
Communications from Art & Architecture University (Tehran, Iran) in 2006, and her MFA in Art
and Design from the University of Michigan (USA) in 2014.  Her work responds to her
experience of living in Iran and the U.S. which has revealed an in-between state about distance;
In her work, she deals with emotional and physical distance, compounded loss, and the opacity
of language.

Soroudi and Ghaderi graduated from the same college in Iran in 2006. After moving to
the U.S. in 2009, and witnessing how Iranian art and specifically women artists are represented
in media and the art scene, they both felt the urge to resolve and correct this image, by showing
a more honest perspective of what really goes in Iran, and to focus on younger generation of
artists who share the same dilemma and themes in their work.
