Teer Art Fair seeks to develop and boost the local art market as well as broaden the audience for modern and contemporary Iranian art.
Teer Art Fair Tehran aims to showcase Iran’s most innovative contemporary and modern art galleries, encompassing a wide range of contemporary art practices. Seasoned collectors and first-time enthusiasts can view a wide selection of Iranian galleries under one roof, browse publications and attend talks. The first edition of Teer Art Fair Tehran, which took place in June 2018 with 10 Tehran-based participating galleries, was visited by approximately six thousand attendants.
Teer Art, founded in 2018 by Hormoz Hematian and directed by Maryam Majd, is a private-sector initiative to promote modern and contemporary Iranian art through two sister events: Teer Art Fair Tehran and Teer Art Week Tehran. Once a year, Teer Art Fair creates a space connecting local galleries, art collectors, industry professionals and visitors. Meanwhile, Teer Art Week offers a comprehensive insight into the exciting and fast-moving world of contemporary Iranian art by holding a week-long program that includes gallery and studio visits, urban installations, curatorial projects, and panel discussions and talks.
