9780863567216: Contemporary Iranian Art: New Perspectives

Renowned art historian Hamid Keshmirshekan explores contemporary art in Iran and considers the relationship between its cultural past, modernism, and the issue of contemporaneity with regard to cultural specificity.

Using over three hundred color illustrations, 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.

Hamid Keshmirshekan is an art historian, critic, visiting fellow at the faculty of Oriental Studies at the University of Oxford, and editor-in-chief of the bilingual quarterly Art Tomorrow.

Review:


'This masterful work is the product of deep research, which eloquently demonstrates the extraordinary richness of the art of modern and contemporary Iran. Keshmirshekan methodically builds a fascinating narrative, charting the development of the art schools, highlighting the key artists, the movements and debates and bringing us to the highly engaged art of today.'

Venetia Porter, Curator, Islamic and contemporary Middle East, The British Museum

Hamid Keshmirshekan has produced a fascinating, informative and stimulating book, allowing us, for the first time, to trace the history of Iranian art during the last 150 years and to appreciate what is happening to art in Iran today.’

James Allan, Professor of Eastern Art, University of Oxford

Contemporary Iranian Art: New Perspectives is revelatory, scarcely matched and surpassed by none. A master connoisseur with an encyclopaedic knowledge of his subject, Dr Keshmirshekan has emerged as the towering historian of contemporary Iranian art.’

Hamid Dabashi, Hagop Kevorkian Professor of Iranian Studies and Comparative Literature, Columbia University

Book Description SAQI BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Complex, innovative and thought-provoking, Iranian art in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries offers fresh insight into a culture and society that have been much misunderstood in the West and elsewhere. In this new, comprehensive study, featuring 379 full-colour images, Hamid Keshmirshekan considers the dynamics at play for Iranian artists as they confront their cultural past as well as issues of contemporaneity and cultural specificity. He contends that the twentieth century in particular proved a crucial period in the art and culture of Iran; it was then that the legacies of tradition and modernism came under critical review, and artistic concerns revealed themselves as indivisible from ideological ones. Contemporary Iranian Art includes major work by acclaimed Iranian artists such as Mahmoud Bakhshi, Shadi Ghadirian, Barbad Golshiri, Marcos Grigorian, Farhad Moshiri, Shirin Neshat, Sohrab Sepehri, Mitra Tabrizian, Parviz Tanavoli and Charles Hossein Zenderoudi. Preface by Hala Khayat, Specialist in Modern and Contemporary Arab, Iranian and Turkish Art, Christie s. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780863567216
