WHAT IS AG GALERIE
Ag Galerie is a private space run by gallery owner and director Simindhokht Dehghani. Ag Galerie is the leading gallery in the field of photography in Iran, and is devoted to the exhibition and promotion of contemporary works of image-based media by established Iranian artists. Simin has been actively organizing and curating exhibitions since 2008 and decided to open a permanent space in January 2015 in order to further promote Iranian art through art fairs and publication.
Ag Galerie also aims to raise the standards of the presentation of photography in Iran through proper archival printing and framing methods. To this end, they have established their own in-house digital printing lab with the finest and most sophisticated of facilities.
Ag's list of artists include renowned Iranian photographers Bahman Jalali, Abbas Kowsari and Arash Hanaei and emerging talents Mehrdad Naraghi and Ali Zanjani.
