Culture Ministry Closes Tehran Gallery

TEHRAN (FNA)- Tehran's Asar Gallery was closed by the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance.



The decision to close the galley was made as it was playing host to an exhibition by Iranian photographer Peyman Hushmandzadeh.

"All the works have been removed from the gallery for their contradictions to Islamic codes and social values as well as for its negligence of sanctities," the ministry's Center for Visual Arts announced on Tuesday, MNA reported.

The exhibition had been organized without any previous agreement with the center, the center added.

All art shows should be authorized by the center, which is an affiliate of the Culture Ministry.

The center's director is officially the curator of the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art.
