Section of CAMA’s authentic focus was a mediated dialogue between Iran and the West, by situating Iranian creatives as artistic trendsetters and lauding the financially viable investment readily available to sponsors of the European art industry. Last year February watched CAMA celebrate artist Fatemeh Divandari within an exhibition titled “The Shade of Kindness,” which ran from February 16th to the 27th.

The inaugural London display, “Sensation,” will comprise 19 contemporary Iranian artists, with works that “…are vastly diverse in subject and style, ranging from hyper-realistic painting to calligraphy, every slice selected [aiming] to stimulate the senses of the audience”

A variant of the press release for example the names of the 19 artists together with detailed descriptions can be obtained here.
