Cultural officials in Berlin, as revealed by The Art Newspaper, have announced an exhibition of a selection of works from the collection of Teheran’s Museum of Contemporary Art, at the Gemäldegalerie from 4 December to 26 February 2017. As the world’s first city to host this collection, reputed as being one of the richest in Western art, Berlin will be followed up by Rome, scheduled to present the works at the MaXXI. Over 60 major modern works by American and European artists such as Francis Bacon, Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock, will be shown alongside pieces by key Iranian artists from the 20th century like Faramarz Pilaram, Mohsen Vaziri Moghaddam and Behjat Sadr. The Teheran museum is taking advantage of this tour to improve its infrastructure and acquire new pieces – something which it hasn’t done in 40 years. Bear in mind that the museum presented, from March to May this year, an exhibition featuring Belgian star artist Wim Delvoye.
