TEHRAN -- An exhibition displaying sculptures by major artists of the Saqqakhaneh Movement, an artistic movement that began in Iran during the 1960s, is currently underway at Tehran’s Niavaran Cultural Historical Complex.
The Saqqakhaneh Movement, also called Saqqakhaneh School, is a neo-traditional style of art that derives inspiration from Iranian folk art and culture. This movement sought to integrate popular symbols of Shia Muslim culture in art.
Among the highlights of the exhibit are Parviz Tanavoli’s “Farhad and Bisotun” and “Poet”.
Works by Hossein Zenderudi, Faramarz Pilaram, Masud Arabshahi, Sadeq Tabrizi, Nasser Ovissi and Mansureh Hosseini have also been selected for the exhibition, which will run until December 21.
