YEKTAI: Manoucher Yektai, Nico Yektai, Darius Yektai

Saturday, October 21, 2017 - Sunday, November 19, 2017

11:00 am


October 21 –December 31
This exhibition traces the familial artistic legacy of patriarch Manoucher Yektai and his two sons: painter/sculptor Darius and furniture maker/sculptor Niko. Manoucher Yektai’s life has brought him through three cultures: Iran, France, and the United States. His trajectory can be seen as a search for Modernism. From Iran, where under Islamic strictures about imagery, free artistic expression was not available, first to the ripe ambience of the School of Paris, then to the fledgling excitement of the emerging New York School.
