From 5th October 2018 to 13th October 2018, Apollonia team led a research trip in Tehran. As part of the Artecitya project, this mission was supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Commission. The pre-selection of the artists and the meeting schedule resulted from several months of research.

Jamal Arabzadeh, artist, curator and art professor, played a leading role in the organization and the success of this operation.

After meeting numerous artists working with various mediums, we finally decided to focus on Iranian contemporary photography. Two or three exhibitions will be held in Strasbourg between the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021, in collaboration with La Chambre (Strasbourg venue dedicated to the photography).

The aim would be to testify of the diversity of the Iranian artistic scene.
