Abbas Kiarostami (22 June 1940 – 4 July 2016) was one of the most acclaimed and influential of Iran’s major filmmakers, visual artist and poet.“A Few Days in Between” is a collective art exhibition celebrating the 79th birthday of Abbas Kiarostami with 79 art pieces dedicated to the late master, by79 artists,  This is a sequence to “A Piece of Life” exhibition Curated by Parham Didehvar on the occasion of of Kiarostami’s 77th birthday with 77 pieces of artwork by 77 artists.
There have been several memorials and tributes to Kiarostami during and after his lifetime, mostly restricted to pre-defined themes such as trees, leaves, and snow. In contrast, “A Few Days in Between” emphasizes on recreation of a slice of life,drawing on artist’s unique and personal interpretation of their surroundings, as Kiarostami always advocated.
“A Few Days in Between” is that grey space called “life” between birth and death, light and darkness. Thus, all exhibited artworks are in black and white; framed in identical frames without regard to artists’ hierarchy, in a collective effort to pay tribute to a man who lived a poetic life and whose visual creations were a reflection of his life experiences. Immortalizing mundane yet glorious routines, untold but captivating stories, and breathing life into images that in all their simplicity have a lot to say or to listen to, was what set apart Kiarostami’s style.
“A Few Days in Between”, centres on the individuality and uniqueness of the artist’s vision; refuses to conform with others; is independent and yet interconnected.
The event is hosted by Arta Gallery at the Historic Distillery District as part of the Tirgan festival.
