Despite his long career spanning over sixty years, Sadeqi remains little known outside of Iran, the LACMA, which is the largest art museum in the western United States, has said in an announcement.
The exhibition has been organized in collaboration with Shirin Gallery in Tehran to commemorate his career.
The organizers expect that the exhibition will help introduce his work to the American audience.
