January 20, 2018 - 18:29

TEHRAN – A retrospective of the veteran Iranian painter, illustrator, animator and sculptor Ali-Akbar Sadeqi will open at the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art (TMCA) on January 28.

The exhibition will showcase his career that spans over 60 years, the organizers announced on Saturday.

A collection composed of his 200 paintings, sculptures, drawings and illustrations has been accumulated for the exhibit.

In addition, a number of his rarely-seen short animated movies will also be screened during the retrospective.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in collaboration with Shirin Gallery in Tehran organized an exhibition of artworks by Sadeqi in October 2016.

Earlier in March 2016, Art Dubai Modern, a major international art fair in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, showcased works by the 80-year-old artist.
