An exhibition of works by renowned Iranian woman artist Monir Farmanfarmaian called “Sunset, Sunrise” is currently underway at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, IMMA.
A collection of sculptures, paintings, jewellery and mirror works by Farmanfarmaian have been put on show at this event, which is co-organized by the Sharjah Art Foundation and the IMMA.
Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, with six decades of experience, is one of the most famous contemporary Iranian artists, the IMMA’s official website wrote.
The “Sunset, Sunrise” exhibition represents the life between two cultures, throughout the history of the East and West, and examines the mystery of nature, the universe, and human’s position in it.
The name “Sunset, Sunrise” is a reminiscent of the sky that separates both the East and the West and connects them.
As one of the great female pioneers, Farmanfarmaian can be categorised alongside twentieth-century figures such as Etel Adnan, Carol Rama and Hilma af Klint, all of whom are known for their vital contributions to the development of contemporary art.
The exhibition will run through November 26 at the Irish Museum.
