Photography by Iranian Artists in "Iran Inside Out" at Chelsea Museum of Art, NYC

It takes very little time to get a sense of the spirit animating an ambitious show of Iranian and Iranian-American artists that opened on Friday at the Chelsea Art Museum.

As you walk in, the first room you see is sardonically titled "In Search of the Axis of Evil." And in another section not far away, a bright, Photoshopped self-portrait of the young Tehran artist Vahid Sharifian shows him, with a big Afro and '70s sideburns, in alarmingly intimate contact with a bored-looking lion. (The lion was one of the emblems of the Iranian monarchy before the Islamic Revolution.)

Read the complete review in The New York Times.
