'finally made it over to the Chelsea Art Museum to check out "Iran Inside Out" -- an overly-ambitious exhibit of over 200 works by 56 contemporary Iranian artists. While most of the artists live and work in Iran, 21 live outside of their native home. The work varies tremendously in themes and sensibilities. It is a bit much to absorb. I found this installation of dozens of postcards -- reworked with black magic marker -- somewhat disconcerting. Not surprisingly, the artist, Shahram Entekhabi, is currently based in Berlin.
