Published in conjunction with a major exhibition of Iranian art at the MAXXI, this substantial volume offers an exhaustive yet fluid survey of the historical events, political and social transformations, and cultural mediation that has given rise to a vibrant and compelling art scene over the last 50 years. It presents a fresh and singular insight on the contemporary visual arts scene in Iran since the years before the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Oscillating between modernity and tradition, this artistic creation, together with its social reality, has been widely ignored by mainstream art and cultural media outside the country, and reflects social turmoil, geopolitical conflicts, and economic shifts.
