  • Tehran Art is a collection of contemporary art of Iran, in which selected works of fifty Iranian artists were introduced and previewed, some parts of this selection belong to Ehsan Lajevardi’s private collection, some of the main concerns illuminated in this collection are the aspects of the urban life and its effect on the current art of Iran. The current state of society, alternations of life in a metropolis like Tehran, matters regarding feminism and in general the existing paradoxes in the daily ordinary life and urbanism are major theme and topics of this exhibition.
    Like any other phenomenon of society, it cannot be grasped and reach its ultimate meaning and notion regardless of its social roots and background. To some extend one of the most important aspects of an art piece is drowned from the text it initially was adapted from and created. For grasping the notion of these pieces, the best possible method would be analyzing their historical and sociological roots and grounds.
    Any alternations in the economical and urban infrastructures would lead to transformation of the framework of art and cultures. And the contemporary art of Iran faced various alternations after the government of reform. In this collection, a selection of works from 1380 have been gathered.
    This project is comprised from the book with the same title which was published by the Contemporary Art Publication, this publication is in association with Lajevardi foundation.
    Moreover, this book includes some essays written by Ali Golestaneh, Behnam Kamrani, Mohamad Reza Shahrokhinejhad, Farhad Azarin, Shahrooz Nazari and Hooman Mortazavi. Each of these experts tried to survey some aspects of these social and political changes.
