Iran at a Glance Art Exhibition

Iran at a Glance - Iran at a Glance Art Exhibition offers a fresh insight into the contemporary Iranian art. As seen through the critical lense of the country’s artists, the conflicting concepts defining the people and its sociopolitical scene are explored through this exhibition. The constant friction as a country standing in between the waves of Eastern and Western influence and weighed down by its own traditions, its art scene has flourished more than ever. Twenty artists have contributed to Iran at a Glance Art Exhibit. Artworks displayed in this exhibition represent a diversity of mediums, themes, and ideologies. . Queen Gallery. Queen Gallery
