Located in downtown Tehran, Bavan Gallery was established in 2018 by Ava Ayoubi, opening with its first site specific exhibition titled “Revision at the House on Abdeh St”. After a year of planning, researching, and renovations, the gallery officially opened its doors to the public in December 2019.
Bavan Gallery’s artistic vision is based on new experiences in contemporary art and is focused on presenting the evolving landscape in art, stemming from the growing influence of new media. Bavan Gallery aims to be a bridge between the vibrant Iranian contemporary art scene, and international art institutions and markets. In addition to exhibitions, Bavan Gallery hopes to help the critical discourse, and create a platform for dialogue in the Iranian visual arts community by hosting panels and discussions, workshops, and by publishing relative materials.
Bavan Gallery is consisted of four exhibition spaces: Ground Floor, First Floor, Pool and Basement (-1 space). Basement is dedicated to exhibiting emerging artists, smaller scale exhibitions and new media projects. The Pool is dedicated to Site- Specific experimental projects for artists to sharing their ideas with their audiences.
