Following the universal theme of voyage, the first major Canadian group exhibition of contemporary artists from the Middle Eastern region arrives at MOA in Spring of 2013.

Guest curated by Fereshteh Daftari, Safar/Voyage’s scope takes viewers from the planet earth, down to maps, and further to specific cities such as Tehran and Cairo, after which it proceeds to reveal internal and meditative spaces, from emotional and existential to spiritual imaginings.

Using a wide range of media, from painting and sculpture to video and audio installations, the journey acknowledges the realities of war, revolution, and migrant conditions, as well as the engagement of artists with cultures outside the Middle East.

Tickets can be purchased from the Museum of Anthropology or from the Tourism Vancouver Visitor Centres (locations: http://www.tourismvancouver.com/vancouver/travel-tips-tools/our-visitor-centre/).
