Museums: The Actually Cool Guide – Pouran Jinchi


Queens Museum of Art

The contemporary Middle Eastern and Central Asian works in the “Tarjama/Translation” exhibition mince no words when it comes to hot-button political issues (many of the featured artists hail from Iraq, Iran, Palestine, Afghanistan and Lebanon). Especially moving is Pouran Jinchi’s Tajvid Red, hand-copied ink on a paper scroll, faithful to the Koran in every way except that it’s missing all of its Arabic consonants; and the 130 deliciously pretty acrylic pastries that make up the dead man’s chalk line in Farhad Moshiri’s Chocline.
