Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian is one of the most important Iranian artists in the contemporary art world.

Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian is one of the most important Iranian artists in the contemporary art world.

Now in her 90s, this new exhibition, titled Sunset Sunrise, draws on work from across four decades of her career, and seeks to shed light on an artist who is somewhat underappreciated and under-recognised.

Sunset, Sunrise features works in a variety of media and scales. There are large-scale mirrored sculptures which have been displayed in the Guggenheim in New York, a city in which Monir spent much of her years of exile from Iran. There are also collages and works on paper, all of which feature an integration of traditional Persian designs and techniques with contemporary abstract forms.

This marks the first time Monir Shahroudy Farmandamaian’s work will be exhibited in Ireland.
