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. Manoucher’s life in the arts directly influenced his sons and the path that they chose. The similarities and differences of their work and their visions will be examined. Curated by Christina Mossaides Strassfield, Museum Director/Chief Curator.
