Rome to Host TMOCA Artworks

An exhibition of valuable artworks from the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art (TMOCA) will be held in Rome in 2017.
This follows a memorandum of cooperation signed by Majid Mollanorouzi, head of TMOCA, with the board of directors of the Italian National Museum of the 21st Century Arts (MAXXI), Mehr News Agency reported.
Similar to Iran’s three-month art exhibition in Berlin that opened on November 20, the Rome event will display 60 items from the Tehran museum’s treasury of artworks, including 30 by Iranian artists and 30 by foreign artists, Mollanorouzi said.
The exhibition will commence in early 2017 and run for four months.
Pointing to a reciprocal program at Tehran’s renowned museum, he said: “Masterpieces in MAXXI museum will also be exhibited for the public in TMOCA.”
Acclaimed works of art will be selected for the event in Rome. “We should do our best to present Iranian art and artists properly,” Mollanorouzi said.
MAXXI is a national museum of contemporary art and architecture in the Flaminio quarter of Rome. It is the first Italian national institution devoted to contemporary art creativity.
The Tehran museum is said to have the most valuable collection of western modern art outside Europe and the United States. It is home to an estimated £2.5 billion ($3.7 billion) worth of modern art. TMOCA occasionally organizes art expos by local artists.
