AB-ANBAR is an independent gallery dedicated to furthering of contemporary art in Iran by providing a context for the producing and exhibiting of Iranian and international contemporary art and related cultural practices. We pursue these concerns through critical activities including exhibitions, lectures, film screenings, performances, publications and special projects.
Established in 2014, AB-ANBAR began in response to a need for the professional development of artists and facilitating exchanges between artists and art professionals in Tehran and globally. Our ethos is to stay borderless through a public program that responds to our locality, alongside the ever-changing global situation in which we currently find ourselves. We create a dialogue with our audience, stimulating artistic practices by producing and presenting challenging works whilst simultaneously creating new ways for our audience to engage with art on an international platform.
Located in downtown Tehran, we recognize that our primary audience is made of local artists, art patrons, and art admirers. Our objective is to inform our local and international audiences and stimulate artistic practice by producing and presenting challenging works while promoting Iranian Contemporary art and artists internationally.
