“Art obliges the artist not to keep himself apart; it subjects him to the most humble and the most universal truth.
The artist forges himself to the others, midway between the beauty he cannot do without and the community he cannot tear himself away from. That is why true artists scorn nothing: they are obliged to understand rather than to judge.
* Excerpt from a speech by French author Albert Camus at Stockholm City Hall on December 10, 1957, while receiving the Nobel Prize in Literature”
Now that the atmosphere of the era and us is out of the usual adjustment, watching some selected works from the current Iranian art scene together, regardless of the generation, movement, and form, can be thought-provoking, whether the origin of our artists' art is a different expression of a valuable concept or simply conveying a pleasure.
