Iran-Norway Curatorial Exchange Program

The curatorial exchange program, with partnership and collaboration of the Norwegian institute of Stiftelsen 3.14, was held in order to enhance the curatorial knowledge in Iran’s contemporary art and provide a proper situation to make dialogue between Iranian and international curators. Mehdi Abdolkarimi (Curator – Artist) and Orkideh Daroudi (Curator – Gallery Owner) were the two selected young Iranian curators who started working on this project  beside Sissel lillebostad and Malin Barth, the other two curators from Norway. Alireza Bayat later joined the group instead of Mehdi Abdolkarimi. The result of their collaboration will be shown in 2017, in both Iran and Norway.
