Tehran is full of surprises these days, and one of these has been the opening of a new gallery, which must make many artists green with envy to be able to show their work there.

 

 

Aun Gallery was designed and built by Ms. Afarin Neyssari, an architect who is one of the owners; although due to her busy schedule it took longer than intended.  The gallery was to be have been opened by another original group member, the late Parviz Maleki. There is a memorial name plate for him on the gallery wall as one enters the hall.

The hall itself where the main show is displayed is a very large area in perfect white and with excellent lighting. 

 

In their own words: Aun Gallery is Tehran's first privately-owned art space designed and built to showcase contemporary art. The building offers 120 square meters of open exhibition space, a five-meter high ceiling and a paneled roof to provide maximum natural light. Aun Gallery allows for the optimal exhibition of all types of art media (painting, photography,  sculpture, video, installation) while offering the visitor a new art viewing experience.

 


 

 

We were outside Tehran when they had their first show, but I made sure that I went to their second opening which showed Pooya Aryanpour's works which was pretty good and looked really good in that large space specially since the works were mostly very large.

 

 

An opening takes place on the first Friday of each Persian month, and each show lasts a month.  It is worth the trouble of getting through Tehran's notorious traffic just to see the gallery, and then there are the art works as an added extra.

 

Do please go to visit this wonderful new and interesting gallery and  let me know what you think.
