A great irony for an Iranian who is based in Iran and loves Iranian arts, especially contemporary Iranian art is that you never get to see them in Iran. Either the government will not let them be shown or the Iranian artist is an exile and banned from the country. Many great pieces of contemporary Iranian arts have never been seen or shown in Iran. They are shown in galleries in New York or London. Just couple days ago, a group of really talented Iranian artists showcased their art in a gallery in NYC. Great pieces of art that will probably never be seen on a wall in a gallery in Tehran for it’s primary intended audience.
