An Iranian Art Plot: ‘Westoxication’
15/11/18 7:00 pmFree
Curator Morad Montazami looks at the emergence and character of Iranian Modernism in conversation with art historians Sussan Babaie and David Hodge.
Iranian modernity emerged at a time of civil unrest (which led to the 1979 revolution) and was financially supported through the oil boom and the exploitation of natural resources by colonial powers. In the post war world, artists moved between Iran and countries in Europe with a circulation of ideas between Western art capitals and Iran. The panel debate the characteristics and climate in which Iranian modernism emerged.
