Monir Farmanfarmaian 2004–2013

id="cck743" class="cck-f100 cck-pad-8">

Work created in the last decade by Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian is the focus of a show at The Third Line, a contemporary Middle Eastern art gallery in Dubai. Nearly 90 years old, Farmanfarmaian still tirelessly produces her eclectic pieces by combining a myriad of materials and styles, from mirrored mosaics and coloured glass to geometric patterns and ancient Persian symbols. The artist, who lived as an exile in New York before returning to Teheran in 2004, has exhibited in many International shows, including three editions of the Venice Biennale, and has made commissioned works for the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. This show also follows the development of a new series in which she investigates cosmological representations.

The Third Line, Dubai, until 19 April 2013.
