Etemad Gallery was founded in 2002 in Tehran by Mina and Amir Hossein Etemad.

The gallery is committed to raising the profile of Iranian contemporary art by featuring emerging and established artists. The works exhibited range from abstraction to figuration, adhering to innovative techniques and aesthetic styles. Today, Iran’s emerging contemporary art scene challenges stereotypes of a society mired in tradition. Young avant-garde artists find inspiration in often complex and interwoven sub-cultures. These artists depict developments triggered by rapid urbanisation, globalisation and changes in demographics, while they address a variety of conceptual themes such as modernity, identity, femininity, and violence.

Etemad’s commitment to contemporary art is deeply rooted in a history of passion for art, encouraged by supporting artists throughout different stages of their careers.
