“Knots” by Jalal Sepehr, “Holiday” by Behnam Seddiqi, and “The Brides of Mokhberoddoleh” by Tahmineh Monzavi are the three collections on show in the exhibit, which opened on May 15.
The exhibition has been curated by Anahita Qabaian from the Silk Road Gallery in association with the Mils gallery.
The exhibition is made up of works that offer unique perspectives on life in Iran. “Knots” reflects Persian carpets, mostly used in Sepehr’s works, Qabaian told the Persian service of ISNA on Monday.
Sepehr has mixed the beautiful motifs of Persian carpets with traditional architecture of Iranian cities in his collection, she said.
“Holiday” portrays a group of Iranian youths on vacations in different tourism spots across the country, she added.
Monzavi’s collection was inspired by the mannequins promoting wedding gowns at shops in the Mokhberoddoleh neighborhood, a district in downtown Tehran.
The exhibit will be running until May 31.
