Today, as one of Tehran’s leading galleries, Assar regularly highlights works by showcasing some of Iran’s notable artists. The gallery is also educated to quality conservation, archiving and publication. With a particular focus on the Iranian Modern and Contemporary Art and years of experience in the art market, Assar is specialized in advising private, institutional and international clients. Assar Art Gallery’s mission is to engage artists and audiences through an ambitious program of quality exhibitions, collections, collaborations and publications, both domestically and internationally.
