Featuring 

Safar/Voyage will be the first major exhibition of
contemporary art from these regions to be shown 
in Vancouver.  

It is constructed as a journey 
in the company of 16 artists, each of whom 
is neither fixed inside the territories of the Middle East 
nor permanently diasporic. 
...
Wrapping the globe, their diverse artworks speak 
to the universal theme of voyage (a translation of 
the Persian safar), from the external and geographical 
to the internal, emotional, and existential. 
... 
The artists of Safar/Voyage are positioned as our guides, 
their visions mined for reflections on some of the most urgent 
issues of our time.  
...
The exhibition is curated by Dr. Fereshteh Daftari, 
former curator at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
MOA Coordinating Curator Dr. Jill Baird, Curator, Education
 & Public Programs.
