Virtual Tour of Arghavan Khosravi: Black Rain, 2023. Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University.



Arghavan Khosravi: Black Rain presents a comprehensive survey of drawings, paintings, and sculptural reliefs, by the Iranian artist Arghavan Khosravi (b. 1984). The exhibition traces the trajectory of her oeuvre—from small-scale drawings produced upon her arrival in the United States in 2015 to recent monumental compositions, straddling painting and sculpture. Khosravi’s work conveys narratives of repression, bondage, and the silencing of women’s voices yet is distilled with a quiet agency that undercuts Western notions of the oppressed Muslim woman.
