Jazeh Tabatabi’s Works at Shahrivar Gallery

The works of the late avant-garde artist Jazeh Tabatabai (1931-2008) have been brought together for an exhibition at Shahrivar Gallery in Tehran.
In cooperation with art collectors, friends and family members, a number of paintings and sculptures by Tabatabai are now showcased at Shahrivar Gallery, located at No. 9, Hormoz Alley, North Khazar Street, Elahie.
The exhibition opened on Friday and will run through December 23. Among various artworks, it features the sculptures Tabatabai created with scrap metals and used parts of motor vehicles, ISNA reported.
Gallery manager Amir Hussein Zandi said the exhibit owes its existence to the cooperation of art collectors and Jazeh’s close friends. “A major part of the featured works is provided by those who had close relations with Jazeh and his family. Film director Khosrow Sinai’s family has made a significant contribution. Some of the works are those Tabatabai had given away as gifts.”
“Other contributors to the exhibit are gallery owner and art director Lili Golestan and fellow artists who had received some of the artworks,” Zandi said.
On the sidelines of the exhibition, a film directed by Sinai will be screened. ‘Autumn Alley’, a documentary about art and artists will be shown on December 3. The film features some of the well-known figures in art and literature, including Tabatabai himself, painter and actor Mehdi Ahmadi, painter and graphic designer Mohammad Ebrahim Jafari, painter Gizella Varga Sinai and writer and film director Nader Ebrahimi.
“After the screening, I will speak about Tabatabai and his place in Iran’s art,” Sinai, 75, said.
“Tabatabai was unparalleled among the artists I have known. He put all his efforts into his artistic career, and became a source of inspiration for others,” Sinai added.
