  3. lovely, lovely…….I wish I could visit this exhibition

  4. This looks like a great exhibition.

    I’m not sure “contemporary” is the right word, as almost all the artists are dead and most of the works date from several decades ago. I think “Twentieth Century” would be more accurate.

    But they are all top class works.

  5. Great information! I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now. Thanks!

  6. Keep posting stuff like this i really like it

  7. Thanks for taking us along on a tour of the art museum exhibit! Your photos are great – they’ll be in a museum someday too I guess!

  8. It is really fantastic to see this in Internet from your museum. Congratulation! The best wishes from Germany to Iran

  9. Is it ok to take pictures in a Gallery in Iran?

    • It depends on the gallery rules or the exhibition holder. In this gallery of Tehran MOCA, you were not allowed to take photos. I could coz I am a photojournalist.

  10. En outre, poss�dez-vous un flux RSS disponible ? Pourriez-vous me le faire parvenir via email svp ? Merci
