Iranian Artisans Exhibition at Dar Al Funoon Gallery

Dar Al Funoon cordially invites you to an exhibition:

"With These Hands"

Opening on Wednesday 10th December at 7pm and continuing through Wednesday 31st December 2014.

“Honor the craftsmen and the sage in equal degree.”
- Omar Khayam, Norooznameh

Traditionally the word ”artisan” is used to describe a person who is skilled at making both useful and decorated objects by hand. But what if they were to also apply aesthetic principles to the design and decoration of these objects? Would they reach the higher expressive levels of artists?

We follow nine Iranian artisans in three different cities to find out where the boundaries between fine and applied arts lie.
