The Bavan Gallery based in Tehran, on the occasion of Art Dubai (from 1 to 5 March) will open an exhibition entitled «Connective Strings of Resilience» from 28 February until 4 May, at Gallery 8 at the Foundry Dubai. The itinerary will include works by 28 Iranian artists who, with their personal visions, will form an ideal collage of ideas and ideals.
