Iran: Women Only | Their Revolution, Then and Now

Women Iran

An exhibit by Randy H. Goodman

Please join us for an artist talk Tuesday, August 9, 4-6 pm, at the Fisher Family Commons space of CGIS Knafel, 1737 Cambridge, St. Cambridge, MA 02138. 

Hear Randy H. Goodman's journey, see additional photos, engage in a gallery walk with the artist,  and join us for light refreshments. 

Cambridge photojournalist Randy H. Goodman captured life in the Islamic Republic of Iran during the hostage crisis and the Iran-Iraq war. She recently returned to Iran after thirty-three years to photograph at yet another pivotal time in US-Iran relations: the signing of the Iran nuclear agreement. Her portraits and street scenes of Women Only, from both periods, present a unique perspective on that country's past and its future. 

The artist talk and exhibit will be at CGIS Knafel, 1737 Cambridge Street, Fisher Family Commons. The exhibit runs July 30-August 28, Monday-Friday, 7 am- 7 pm with special closing dates and times of Saturday 8/27 (9:30 am - 8:30 pm) and Sunday 8/28 (11 am -  8 pm) and is sponsored by the Center for Middle Eastern Studies.
