The number of Iranian art galleries has been rising in recent years, a member of the Faculty of Art and Architecture of Islamic Azad University said.
In an exclusive interview with Financial Tribune, Vahid Sheykhian added that this is mainly because of two reasons. 
“One is rooted in the growing focus on art galleries’ business and financial aspects, i.e. buying and selling artworks. The other is that quantity has overcome quality and the number of permits issued daily for the establishment and operation of art galleries is increasing. The artistic value is not appreciated like they used to be,” he added.
In Iran, the Visual Arts Office at the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance is in charge of issuing permits for art galleries.
