Organized by OKCMOA in partnership with the Kiarostami Foundation, Kiarostami: Beyond the Frame is a multimedia, retrospective survey of artworks by acclaimed Iranian filmmaker, photographer, and visual artist, Abbas Kiarostami.
The first American museum display since the artist’s death in 2016, Beyond the Frame reveals a singular artistic vision and a wide-ranging body of work nearly a half-century in the making, from his early children’s films and graphic design work to his immersive large-scale photographs and installations of his twenty-first-century video art.
“Kiarostami represents the highest level of artistry in the cinema.” -Martin Scorsese
This exhibition features the world premiere of the famous Regardez-moi portfolio, Kiarostami’s series of photographs depicting visitors to the Louvre and other museums. In conjunction with the exhibition, a comprehensive retrospective of his feature films will screen in the Noble Theater. Kiarostami’s films have won countless international prizes, including the Palme d’Or, and frequently appear in surveys of the greatest films of all time.
