Architect and curator Faryar Javaherian has set up an exhibition of architecture and Persian garden design at Golestan Palace in Tehran.

The ‘Picnic’ exhibition is underway at the lower wing of Shamsolemareh, the finest edifice on the eastern wing of Golestan Palace and the first high rise in Tehran, Honaronline reported.

“We took the exhibit to the lower floor of Shamsolemareh because the place is congruent with the concept of ‘space’ we are representing,” Javaherian said. Shamsolemareh, literally meaning ‘edifice of sun’ is the tallest building in Golestan Palace and fuses Persian and European architecture into a five-story structure with two imposing  towers and a small clock tower in the middle.

Having opened September 15, Picnic is a review on works by contemporary Iranian artists. “It is a group exhibition running for two months. On display are  artworks including painting, sculpture, architecture, video art, installation art and performance art,” she said.

The royal Golestan Palace is located near Arg Square in downtown Tehran.
