A Painting Biennial in Tehran
By MortazaviBlog on Dec 21, 2006
While looking for a photo of yalda celebrations this year, I ran into this interesting photo from the scene of The Fourth International Painting Biennial of The Islamic World in Tehran, Iran.
Click on it and you'll see a larger image at Flickr.
I believe the biennial started in the last week of November, and it looks like it ended today, December, 21, 2006.
Here are some other pictures I found.
It would be good to see more photographs of this exhibition. (As another example, check out this work.) There does not seem to be a website for the biennial or one that actually displays all the paintings.
I believe my friend, and ex-Berkeley-ite, Bobak Etminani,
also has several paintings on display in the biennial.
