TEER ART FAIR 2018Back to Home

Teer Art Fair’s first edition took place from 24-30 June 2018 at Ava Art levels, a 1700 sq-meter space dedicated to contemporary art and interdisciplinary performances. It was then the first effort of its kind, coordinating eleven galleries of the Iranian capital under one roof for a unique presentation of artworks and innovative programming designed to familiarise the local public with the unique dynamics of an art fair. The success of Teer Art fair 2018 – as seen through high-quality presentation, healthy sales and numerous press reviews – cemented its potential to become a larger event offering a wider scope of works and projects in future editions.
