TEHRAN.(Iranart) - A collection of 135 art pieces by acclaimed British sculptor Tony Cragg opened in San’ati Museum of Contemporary Art in Kerman, Kerman Province, on Thursday.
An exhibition of 35 sculptures alongside 100 sketches and graphic designs by Cragg marks the last stop in his tour of Iran, Mehr News Agency quoted the artist’s first assistant, John Macardi, as saying.
“We used a new collection of sculptures for the exhibitions [in Iran]. The exhibition in Tehran and Isfahan [in the past months] received a very warm welcome and a huge number of visitors,” he added.
Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art previously featured 60 sculptures and 140 sketches last October. The exhibition “Tony Cragg: Roots & Stones” was also showcased in Isfahan Museum of Contemporary Art from February till April.
TMoCA recently unveiled a sculpture donated by the veteran artist titled ‘Roots & Stones’ in its public area, near the works of renowned artists like Karl Schlamminger, Henry Moore and Parviz Tanavoli.
The exhibit in Kerman will last for 58 days and the artworks will later tour Germany and Denmark.
