‘Present Illuminations’ examines the works of three prominent Iranian contemporary artists whose practices are profoundly influenced by Persian miniature.

Each has developed a unique transformative approach to the traditional style, reinterpreting and reimagining various aspects of it from a contemporary perspective. Their work not only pays homage to the historical legacy of Persian miniature but also reshapes its future, contributing to its enduring relevance in the contemporary art scene.
