The Apeejay Media Gallery in collaboration with the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art presents for the first time ever in South Asia an exhibition of over 13 video works by contemporary artists from Iran working in the sophisticated medium of digital video.
Speaking about the exhibition Hamid Severi, Guest curator from Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art said, “Iran is possibly the most important country in the Middle East for contemporary art and is especially renowned for its sophisticated cinema and video. Iranian video art, in its simplest manifestations, provides videotaped documents of musical and dramatic performances, of performance art, of street happenings, or even of self-portraits in motion of the artist at work.”
