Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian: Sunset, Sunrise

Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin

NOW CLOSED

Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian’s solo show presents work in a wide range of media and genres. The artist’s kaleidoscopic sculptures of the 1970s are displayed alongside her jewellery, collage and embroidery work from the 1980s, while the exhibition also includes new pen and ink drawings from the artist’s studio. Moir studied at the Fine Arts College of Tehran, before moving to the United in 1945, where she worked alongside artists such as Jackson Pollock, Louise Nevelson, and Andy Warhol. In 2004, she moved back to Tehran, where the Monir Museum opened last year – the first museum in Iran to be dedicated to a female artist. Find out more about ‘Sunset, Sunrise’ from IMMA’s website.
