February 21, 2018

TEHRAN – A number of students of the prominent sculptor Parviz Tanavoli will display their works in an exhibition, which will open at Tehran’s Jaleh Gallery on Friday.

The exhibit entitled “Metal Condition” will showcase a collection of sculptures and jewelry designs created by the students, the gallery announced on Wednesday.

“In 2001, when Tanavoli returned back home [from Canada] after many years, he established his training atelier to pass his enormous technical and conceptual knowledge on to other students,” the gallery said in a statement.

“‘Metal Condition’ is the experimental outcome of the students with different backgrounds in painting, architecture, filmmaking and industrial design,” it added. 

The works also reflect issues such as the economic crisis, urban living and the media influence, as well as Persian traditional art.

Maryam Ebtekar, Elham Jafari, Ladan Johari, Yekta Darvish, Mohammadreza Rastgu and Behnaz Fazeli are some of the participating artists.

The exhibit will run until March 9 in the gallery located at No.3, Noshahr Alley, Iranshahr St.
