Ag Galerie is a privately-owned space wholly devoted to exhibiting contemporary works of image-based media by established Iranian artists. Simindokht Dehghani, the gallery owner and director, has been actively organizing and curating exhibitions since 2008. The decision to open a permanent space in January 2015 was the result of a desire to further promote Iranian art through art fairs and publications. The gallery’s first location was a restored 1960s villa in the northern part of Tehran. After three years and twenty-four exhibitions, in the summer of 2018, Ag Galerie moved to Tehran’s bustling city-centre and art district. The current space is a restored1930s villa and will also house the newly-launched Ag Experiments program; a non-profit effort aimed at supporting young talent. AgGalerie supports creating an artistic dialog between artists from Iran and elsewhere and therefore invites curators and artists to exhibit at the gallery.
