France to Host Iran Art Exhibition

TEHRAN (FNA)- An exhibition of Iran's modern art is scheduled to be displayed by the Cultural Department of Iran's embassy in France in mid-March.



"A collection of visual arts will be on display in France in mid-March," Mahmoud Shalouei, Director General of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance's Visual Arts Department, announced in an interview with FNA on Tuesday.

According to the official, the art has been purchased from various visual arts exhibitions held over the past thirty years, since the Islamic Revolution.

"About sixty works of art have been selected out of a one hundred to be sent to the fair," Shalouei added.

The Iranian arts exhibition will be on display in France for two weeks.
