The Sky wrecks the ship of Art-masters
Better not to lean on this hanging sea
Her main concern particularly in the past twenty years was to introduce Iranian Art and Artists to the world and lovingly devoted all she had in this path.
Our condolences to all the art-lovers in Iran and abroad.
Her absence will be a great void for the art of this land.
Mir-Emadi’s funeral will take place on Monday June 12, 2017 from Pars Hospital to the Artists’ piece in Behesht Zahra graveyard.
Her Commemoration ceremony will take place on June 14, 2017 at 14-15.30 in Noor Mosque at Fatemi Square in Tehran.
A Devotee of Art and Culture
Manijeh Mir-Emadi (Naseri) began her activity as an art-publisher in the 1990s presenting a series of bilingual exquisite art books on the life of influential Iranian visual artists together with evaluation and critical analysis of their works. This was indeed a significant event both with respect to book publication and also visual arts.
