Damien Hirst in Tehran


Shark & Kouseh
(Kouseh is Rafsanjani?s nickname. It is playing on the word kouseh which means both shark and beardless in Persian).

The Britart exhibition ?Turning Points: 20th Century British Sculpture? has opened during the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, and just four days after national parliamentary elections. The exhibition is presenting a new generation of Iranians with original works of British art. Apparently the entire space of the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art has given over to this exhibition.
