VIP Seated Dinner & Art Auction 

 
This week of Contemporary Iranian Art marked MOP's second venture into the Los Angeles art community! The exciting program for the week included a group exhibition and live auction of artworks donated by contemporary Iranian artists to the Friends of MOP Foundation, as well as a panel discussion and film premiere held at the Brown Auditorium at LACMA. 
 
The exhibition was held once again in collaboration with Sotheby's and in the presence of acclaimed Iranian artist and our guest of honour, Fereydoun Ave. The auction was conducted by Andrea Fiuczynski, Chairman of the Americas for Sotheby's. The panel discussion and film premiere was co-organised with the Art of the Middle East Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). 

Alongside a spectacular work by Fereydoun Ave donated to the charity, and three lithographs created by HIM Farah Pahlavi, the exhibition featured artwork by 20 emerging and established Iranian artists based in Iran and the diaspora.

PANEL DISCUSSION & FILM PREMIERE 

Portraying Fereydoun Ave's Multidimensional Practice


Panellists: 
Fereydoun Ave, Artist
Dr Shiva Balaghi, Independant Scholar and Curator
Tony Shafrazi, Artist and Gallerist
Roxane Zand, Deputy Chairman, Middle East and Gulf Region, Sotheby's 


Moderator: 
Fereshte Moosavi, Art Director & Curator, MOP Foundation  

This panel discussion explored the profoundly influence and yet understudied phenomena of multi-dimensionality in the practice of Fereydoun Ave. The fundamental role that he has played as artist, designer, curator, collector and... has not only had a great influence on contemporary art, but has also proposed different possibilities for artistic practice.
