Four galleries to catch this week in Tehran
There is a booming private art gallery scene in Tehran with more than 100 new art houses opening in the past year alone. Still, some of the established brands continue with new locations like Etemad and Shirin.
The heart of the new art gallery scene in the capital is the Karim Khan Zand Street area of the city, both above and below the central boulevard. What’s more amazing is the many affordable artworks on sale in the town, so why not snap up one of the emerging artists in the country before their price skyrockets!

“The narrative of a dream the is a story of internal mood and state. A story of life, and of facing the outside world through the inside. The result is two worlds: the world of dreams and the world of reality. A dream that is so closely tied to the internal reality that it tends to show up every moment, everywhere. Time and place and the mind are woven together and make a world that nobody else can see: your very own world, a colourful world, with colourful ideas, a world so distant from external realities. And there is the real world, which is neither white nor black, and is only black and white, that you have to understand and live with.”
4: Negar Art Gallery
Here’s your last chance to see Negar Art Gallery’s latest exhibition closing on May 23rd uptown in Gheytarieh.
