AMAGA NSW are pleased to invite members and friends to a private talk and tour of the Powerhouse’s latest exhibition Iranzamin led by exhibition curator Dr Pedram Khosronejad.
Meaning “land of the Persians” Iranzamin is the first survey exhibition of the museums collection of Persian arts and crafts in the museum’s history.
Through the careful selection of objects the exhibition explores stories behind rarely seen artefacts from the mid 19th century to the present day, shedding light on the diverse social and cultural history of Persia, and the influences that this culture has had on Australian designers such as Florence Broadhurst.

This event is free but bookings are essential,
Wednesday 19th May from 3pm-5pm.
