Behjat Sadr @ The Mosaic Rooms
28 September 2018 - 8 December 2018
This the first UK exhibition dedicated to Behjat Sadr (1924-2009), now regarded as one of Iran’s most influential and radical visual artists. The exhibition brings together a selection of masterpieces by the artist never seen before in the UK. The display reveals Sadr’s dramatic artistic journey against the backdrop of bitter political events and her struggles as a woman fighting for recognition on a male dominated art scene. Each of the three gallery spaces at The Mosaic Rooms is dedicated to a city that was instrumental in shaping Sadr’s practice. Sadr’s own career path is evidence of a cosmopolitan modernity that was emerging in and between Tehran, Rome and Paris where the artist eventually settled after the 1979 Revolution.
