This event will be held during the exhibition Rocket Rain موشک باران, the solo exhibition by Iranian, Los Angeles-based artist, Gelare Khoshgozaran. Rocket Rain borrows its title from the second chapter of the Iran-Iraq War, known in the West as “The War of the Cities”, which Iranians refer to and remember as موشک باران mooshak-baran: “Rocket Rain.” Initiated by the Iraqi Air Force in 1984, and quickly retaliated by Iran, this was a series of systemic air raids over major cities densely populated by civilians. The exhibition juxtaposes the different abstractions of war. Drawing from the most intimate to the most generic imagery, Rocket Rain provides a lens in which to grapple with the political landscape of the Iranian nation state, while reflecting on the state of perpetual, imminent war in the U.S.
