New Project – Golestan Museum

South of the Caspian Sea, the mountains are covered with a blanket of jungle, a natural reserve protected by UNESCO . This is the land of the wolves and leopards, once called Hyrcania by the Greeks (taken from the Darius’ Behistun inscription Verkana).   

We are honored to be a taking on a new museum project in the beautiful northwestern province of Golestan! In this way, we can help contribute to the preservation of history and culture from this special region of Iran. More updates soon!

Ghazal Radpay: Intersections, Road Movie 7&8, Still Life

New show opening last weekend!

Ghazal Radpay | Azad Art Gallery, Nov. 20 – 25 / 29 Aban – 4 Azar |

Ghazal explores roots and rootlessness through her raw approach to art as she returns from Paris to her native Tehran. As part of this show, she provides a social commentary on Iran today by filming herself while writing her experiences and every-day perspectives on a board for all to see. As quickly as it is read it is erased, and the content was anything from major problems facing the poor or the youth of Iran to a solicitation for the adoption of her new batch of kittens.

We highly recommend this show!
