The 'Elsewhen Exhibition' by Ala Ebtekar features a series of ethereal architectural images that are artful and intricately detailed. The Iranian-American artist creates futuristic environments based on a variety of inspirations gathered from science fiction imagery and the work of Persian poet Hafez.

Ebtekar creates futuristic environments that pay homage to the architecture of the past, taking inspiration from mythology and history. Combining imagery of grand spaces, tombs and imaginary environments, the artist fuses super-imposed concepts, Hafez's book pages and poetic lessons for an art exhibition that pushes the envelope.

Highly complex beliefs and concepts are translated in a visual way, making for dynamic art pieces that stand out and pull the viewer in. The 'Elsewhen Exhibition' by Ala Ebtekar acts as a poetic illumination for Persian poet Hafez and represents the artist's cultural background.
