Tehran museum to reopen with int’l artworks on Vietnam War

Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art (TMCA) is to reopen after two years of restoration.

The Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art (TMCA) is set to reopen on Thursday after two years of restoration, putting on display artworks by Western artists who protested the Vietnam War.

Artworks by Dennis Oppenheim, Gordon Matta-Clark, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Edward Ruscha and several other artists have been selected for the exhibition.

The museum will receive a limited number of visitors on the opening day but it will be open to the public next week on Tuesday with in-advance reservations.

The organizers have also planned to establish virtual visits to the museum.

The TMCA will display a private collection of Iranian artist Manijeh Miremadi and her husband Jamshid Nasseri under the name “Souvenir”.

The collection is a real gift that shows the artistic life of this couple who collected rare and precious items.

Established in 1977, the TMCA is home to works by many distinguished artists of the West, including Claude Monet, Francis Bacon, Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol.

The TMCA is also notable in the world for its historical narration of art with the largest collection of Western art that exists in the East.
