Parsian Azadi Hotel will host the 7th edition of Tehran Auction on July 7 to present 72 classic and modern artworks by acclaimed Iranian artists.
Organizers of the event offer their experience and expertise to bring selective artworks of various genres to art lovers.
Tehran Auction is a national endeavor to address the increasing interest in modern and contemporary Iranian art and facilitate the acquisition of the best quality works in reliable ways.
The auction will start at 7 pm at Parsian Azadi Hotel which is located at the intersection of Chamran and Yadegar highways in the capital.
The previous two editions of the auction, held in May 2016 and 2015, at the same venue, generated $7.4 and $6.4 million respectively, both marking a historic moment in the history of Persian fine arts, and a boost to Iran’s economy of art.
The first of its kind in Iran, Tehran Auction was launched in 2012 as a private, independent initiative to introduce the best of Iranian art ranging from established and emerging Iranian artists to Iranian art collectors and global buyers.
It also aims to support the domestic art market as a key basis for the international market. Tehran Auction works widely with Iranian art galleries and collectors to ensure a vast and strong selection of paintings, sculptures and photographs.
Similar to last year’s edition, actor, screenwriter, director and TV presenter Hossein Pakdel will conduct the event.
