Modern Masters and Contemporary Culture from the Arab World and Iran
To celebrate our 10th anniversary, The Mosaic Rooms present an ambitious programme of exhibitions and events running from spring 2018 to autumn 2019. The programme of six exhibitions has two parts, a series of seminal Arab and Iranian modernist artists from Egypt, Iran and Morocco curated by Morad Montazami and a series of group shows presenting contemporary art from these three countries organised in partnership with regional institutions and curators.
The Mosaic Rooms presents the first UK exhibition dedicated to Behjat Sadr (1924-2009), now regarded as one of Iran’s most influential and radical visual artists. The exhibition brings together a selection of masterpieces by the artist never seen before in the UK.
Explore our current exhibition of radical Iranian artist Behjat Sadr in a different way, in a special tour led by curator Rose Lejeune in conversation artist and curator Azadeh Fatehrad.
The Mosaic Rooms are pleased to support this event with artist Jumana Emil Abboud in conversation with curator Catherine Wood at the Terrace Shop, Tate Modern.
