The Invisible Present is an ongoing screening program selected from the Parkingallery Video Archive. The Tehran-based video archive initiated in 2004 include emerging artists from Iran and outside. It introduces the vibrant new wave video art scene in Iran. The San Francisco edition of the program highlights various disciplines, such as narrative fiction, documentary, experimental, animation, performance, and photography. The artists—mainly younger than 35 years old—work within Iran and across the globe. The Invisible Present sheds light on a generation that can not be plainly defined and is often harshly targeted internationally, an era that seeks to be present and exercise their independence while being invisible to many.
