TEHRAN -- Painter Mercede Tusi Tehrani has sneered at the patriarchy during the Qajar period (1783-1924) in her pop abstract series entitled “Qajarity” that is currently on display at Tehran’s Shokuh Gallery.
 
“Men would never achieve prominent status in societies if there were no women,” the 30-year-old artist said during the opening ceremony of the exhibition  on Friday.
 
She said that women have always been involved in wars and historical events.
 
The series depicts women as beautiful, strong, and vastly capable, and shows men aggressive and full of cruelty. 
 
She said that she named the collection “Qajarity” to highlight the similarities between modern times and the Qajar era.
 
The exhibition will come to an end tomorrow at the gallery located at 19 Amir Nuri Alley, North Salimi St., and Andarzgu Blvd.
