TEHRAN – The 15th edition of the Iranian surrealist painter Iran Darrudi’s autobiography “In the Distance between Two Points” will be unveiled during a ceremony at the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art (TMCA) on Friday.
 
Seven works by 76-year-old Darrudi will also go on display on the sidelines of the ceremony at the museum.
 
Darrudi will attend the ceremony and deliver a speech about her motivations for writing the autobiography.
 
The first edition of the book was released in 1996 by Ney Publications.
 
Darroudi studied at Ecole Superier des Beaux-Arts in Paris, history of art at the École du Louvre in Paris, stained glass at the Royal Academy of Brussels, and television direction and production at the R.C.A. Institute in New York.
 
Her solo exhibition was held in Miami in 1958 at the invitation of the Florida State Art Center. Her first exhibition in Iran was held in April 1960 at the Farhang Hall. 
 
She wrote articles on the history of art and art criticism for the newspaper Kayhan at that time. 
 
In 1974, a film on Darroudi’s life was broadcast on American television. In 1976 she exhibited at the Mexican Museum of Art, where Antonio Rodriquez praised her as one of the world’s four greatest painters.
