January 1, 2019

TEHRAN – The first edition of the Teer Art Week, which is an art fair organized by a number of Tehran galleries, will open on Friday.

The art fair aims to encourage more dialogue among gallery owners, art experts, and artists and develop a good relationship between art and everyday life, the organizers said in a statement published on Tuesday.     

“The Teer Art Week is the first comprehensive program ever launched in the country to develop resources and infrastructures for the promotion of contemporary Iranian art,” the statement added.
   
Twenty-one galleries will be playing host to 21 exhibitions during the weeklong art expo, which was co-founded by the Dastan Basement Gallery and Asar Gallery on June 26, 2018.

Dozens of panel discussions will also be organized during the program.

A pilot project for the art fair was held at Ava Center at the same time.

Atbin, Silk Road, Etemad, Hoor, Aran, Afrand, Art Center, Shirin, Delgosha, Homa and several other galleries will participate in the art fair, which will be held with contributions from several organizations, including the Iranian Art Forum.
