Contemporary Iranian Art: New Perspectives


Member Price

Contemporary Iranian Art: New Perspectives was written by art historian Hamid Keshmirshekan who explores contemporary art in Iran and considers the relationship between its cultural past, modernism, and the issue of contemporaneity with regard to cultural specificity.

Keshmirshekan contends that the twentieth century is a crucial period in the culture and art of Iran when the legacies of tradition and modernism were being critically reviewed and the artistic concerns were indivisible from ideological ones.
