"Iran Modern" Exhibition Past

Sept 6, 2013 to Jan 5, 2014 ,
10:00 PM - 5:00 PM
- New York, NY, United States

Asia Society is organizing a landmark exhibition, Iran Modern, that will focus on Iranian art created during the three decades leading up to the revolution of 1979. Asia Society’s aim is to shed light on a period when Iranian artists were engaged with the world through the Tehran Biennial in Iran as well as exhibitions overseas, and when their work was collected by institutions inside and outside of Iran. The exhibition maps the genesis of Iranian modernism in order to argue that the development of modernist art is inherently more globally interconnected than previously understood.
The first major U.S. international loan exhibition on the subject, Iran Modern comprises over 100 paintings, sculpture, photography, and works on paper by the most noteworthy Iranian artists of the 1950s to 1970s, and provides a dynamic perspective on Iran’s rich culture and history for the public.
