ICA Biennale was founded in 2013 by Majid Abbasi Farahani and is now one of the most prestigious cultural organisations in Iran.
The ICA Biennale is an independent and non profit organisation which has been dedicated to the advancement of discourse of contemporary art. It began as a venture to showcase Iranian contemporary art by providing an international platform for innovative contemporary Iranian artists, alongside established international artists to create a space for cultural and social appreciation and exchange.
The first and second shows have received great interest from press, collectors and tourists both in and outside of Iran. The third edition is planned to take place in Spring 2019. It will be a traveling exhibition, taking place in partnership with renowned contemporary art museums located in Tehran and Isfahan. Over 15,000 are expected to attend including Iran’s top 200 collectors.
