Cape Breton Post - - Arts/Entertainment -

TEHRAN, Iran — A daugh­ter of Iran’s op­po­si­tion leader Mir Hos­sein Mousavi, who has been un­der house ar­rest since early 2011, is hold­ing a paint­ing ex­hi­bi­tion in Tehran. Narges Mousavi’s six-day ex­hibit, en­ti­tled “When it Dawned,’’ is her sec­ond ex­hi­bi­tion since her fa­ther was placed un­der house ar­rest along with an­other op­po­si­tion leader, Mahdi Kar­roubi. The two led street protests and chal­leng­ing then-pres­i­dent Mah­moud Ah­madine­jad’s 2009 re-elec­tion. No charges have been raised against Mousavi and Kar­roubi. Narges says her ex­hi­bi­tion is “about the con­trast be­tween coarse­ness of war and el­e­gance of peace.’’
