This Autumn we are delighted to present a solo exhibition of one of the most influential and pioneering artists of the Middle East: Parviz Tanavoli, the internationally recognized artist and Iran's first significant modern sculptor.
Tanavoli graduated with honours in 1959 at the Accademia Di Belle Arti Di Brera, Milan under the sculptor Marino Marini. The selection of work on display features over thirty-five pieces including ceramics, fiberglass and bronze sculptures, paired with contemporary drawings, emphasising his abiding and joyful love for Persian architecture, culture and poetry.
To mark this event, Tanavoli will participate in an artist debate held at The British Museum on 22nd September 2011, organized with the help of Iran Heritage Foundation and The British Museum.
