This week of Contemporary Iranian Art marks MOP’s second venture into the Los Angeles art community! The exciting program for the week includes a group exhibition and live auction of artworks donated by contemporary Iranian artists to the Friends of MOP Foundation, as well as a panel discussion and film premiere to be held at the Brown Auditorium at LACMA. The exhibition is held once again in collaboration with Sotheby’s and will unfold in the presence of acclaimed Iranian artist and our guest of honour, Fereydoun Ave.
The auction will be conducted by Andrea Fiuczynski, Chairman of the Americas for Sotheby’s. The panel discussion and film premiere is co-organised with the Art of the Middle East Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
Alongside a spectacular work by Fereydoun Ave donated to the charity, and three lithographs created by HIM Farah Pahlavi, this exhibition will feature artwork by 20 emerging and established Iranian artists based in Iran and the diaspora.
