Tehran's Museum of Contemporary Art to Host Iran's Modern Art Movement

Following the foreign Modern Art Movement Exhibition, art enthusiasts will now have the chance to see Iranian modern arts gathered in MoCA.

Tehran, 21 November 2005 (CHN) -- Director of Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art has announced the opening of Iran's modern art movement exhibition in one month.

The exhibition will be displaying some works of Sohrab Sepehri, Masoud Arabshahi, Mohsen Vaziri Moghadam, Hossein Zendeh Roodi, Marco Gergorian, Manouchehr Sheibani, and other figures of Iranian modern art.

Abdolmajid Hosseini Rad, who attended the opening ceremony of a 4-day seminar in the National Museum of Iran on museum management, described the upcoming exhibition of Iran's contemporary art as a turning point in the art world of Iran, "Most probably the opening ceremony will be held on 12th of December, but the exact date is not yet clear. In the exhibition numerous works of Iranian artists, which have not had the chance to be displayed after the revolution, will be displayed," said Hosseini Rad.

With the recent unique exhibition of western modern arts in MoCA which amazed foreigners as well as Iranians, the director believes that the upcoming show will result in the unveiling of the rest of the invaluable and important works which were being kept in storage during the past years.

Modern Art Movement Exhibition, in which works of famous western artists were displayed, opened on 29th of August 2005 in Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art. Since it was welcomed greatly by art lovers, the exhibition was extended two times. It is supposed that Iranian artists' works will also receive a tremendous welcome by the people.
