TEHRAN – Works by Iranian artists will be put on display in an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (Musée d’Art Moderne) in Paris in May.
 
The exhibition entitled Unedited History reflects the art and visual culture of Iran from the 1960s to the present.
 
Over 200 posters, paintings and photographs will be shown in the exhibit, which will open on May 16, the organizers have announced.
 
Twenty artists from the years 1960–1970 and a group of representatives from the new generation will be presenting their works in the exhibit.
 
Morteza Avini, Kazem Chalipa, Kaveh Golestan, Bahman Jalali, Ardeshir Mohasses, Morteza Momayyez, Kamran Shirdel and Kurosh Shishegaran are among the artists whose works have been selected for the exhibit.
 
Moreover, a book with the same title as the exhibit will be offered on the sidelines of the exhibit, which will be running until August 24.
 
The book contains details of the works with essays and historical material, bringing a fresh perspective to local-global interaction in the Iranian art context. 
 
Vali Mahluji, Bavand Behpur, Hamed Yusef and Morad Montazami are among the authors of the book.
