Pollution Plight Focus of Artists and Artworks

To help raise public awareness about the worsening air pollution in Tehran, a group of artists have created artworks on the key health issue.
Tehran, home to 12 million people, has been struggling with toxic air for decades. As the situation goes from bad to worse no sustainable solution has been found by those in charge. Limited stopgap measures by urban planners and the municipality have failed to produce the desired results. 
Silk Road Gallery, dedicated to the medium of photography, opened a group exhibition on April 13 reviewing the photos taken as a part of the ‘Tehran Monoxide Project’, a series of cultural activities conducted over six years (2011-2017) in collaboration with a large group of artists, designers, school students and people with backgrounds in the art, culture and research.
