On the occasion of Istanbul Contemporary Art Fair 2021 organized atTersane (Halic Shipyard), Iranshahr is proud and happy to present a selection reflecting its editorial line to discover contemporary Iranian art and build cultural bridges with international art scenes.
Iranshahr is an independent gallery, founded in 2014. The gallery’s program is centred on promotion of thought-provoking artists from the Iran, locally and internationally. The gallery is committed to discovery and experimentation, with a mission to strengthen the position of contemporary art in Iran.

We aim to create a dialogue with our audience, expanding the domain of our practice through the production and exhibition of institution-quality work, complemented by innovative strategies for our audience to engage with contemporary art. We address these concerns through a comprehensive international programme, including exhibitions, encompassing lectures, documentries, performances, publications and other residential projects.
