(Persia Digest) – The Tehran art auction will be holding the second round of its seventh edition in January 2018. It is an event at which contemporary and modern works of art are auctioned every year.
Alireza Samei-Azar, Tehran Director, had announced at the end of its sixth edition: “Following the relative success of the Tehran Auction, we decided to make this event more specialized and, in addition to the auction held for the works of classical and modern artists, hold a second auction focusing on contemporary and modern art. The age of the artists is irrelevant and only the definitions of contemporary art are important. Artists such as Farhad Moshiri who did not have any works at the first auction, will be featured in the second round."
The second round of the 7th edition will take place in Tehran on 12 January 2018. This auction only includes works by contemporary Iranian artists, whereas the previous round was dedicated to modernist and classical artists. These are living artists with contemporary approaches and young faces can be seen among them in abundance.
