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 publication. The gallery building is a restored 1930’s villa in Tehran’s city center. We support creating an artistic dialog between artists from Iran and elsewhere and have invited renowned international artists such as Martin Parr and Broomberg & Chanarin to exhibit at Ag.Our aim is to also raise the standards of the presentation of photography in Iran through proper archival printing and framing methods.To this end, we have established Ag Digital Lab, our own in-house digital printing studio with the finest and most sophisticated of facilities.
Ag Galerie at Teer Art week 2019
Goh Ballet Academy
Ag Galerie is pleased to announce the opening of Ali Ahadi’s solo exhibition, “گُه بله آکادمی” (Goh Ballet Academy). The title of the exhibition comes from the name of a ballet academy in Vancouver that once transliterated into the artist’s mother tongue (Persian) would read as “گُه بله آکادمی, meaning “Shit Yes Academy”. The exhibition will feature a recent body of works, comprised of a series of photographic and text-based mixed-media objects, a series of sculptural installations, and an image-based light box, responding to both the architectural and urban-geographical specificities of the gallery’s site in Tehran. An exhibition book including critical essays will be published to accompany the exhibition (…).
