TEHRAN, Oct. 10 (Mehr News Agency) -- "Broken Promises, Forbidden Dreams", an exhibition displaying works of a group of Iranian painters, was warmly welcomed at Art London.
The show was held from October 4 to 8 at the institution, which is both an art gallery and a venue for providing consultation to dealers.
The London-based Iran Heritage Foundation organized the event, which displayed over 100 paintings of 30 Iranian artists, most of whom live in Iran.
Iman Afsarian, Shahriar Ahmadi, Samira Alikhanzadeh, Maryam Amini, Puya Arianpur, Ali Chitsaz, Mostafa Dashti, Kamran Diba, Azarnush Ebrahimi, and Yaghoub Emdadian are some of the painters whose works were exhibited at the gallery.
"The sale was warmly received and the foundation and the Iranian community collaborated well to promote contemporary Iranian art here," Art London director Ralph Ward-Jackson said in a recent interview.
The works depicted the environment of paradox, frustration, and hope in which contemporary Iranian art thrives today.
