This group exhibition introduces London to the small-format works on paper by both well established and upcoming artists from inside and outside Iran. It includes works by pioneering artists as Arabshahi, whose 'Avesta' series in the 1960s launched a new movement in Iranian contemporary art, and Ehsai's innovative calligraphy, which inspired several generations of calligraphers.
