Art Dubai 2018: Must-Visit Booths

Harper's Bazaar Arabia

Harper's Bazaar Asia has featured the booth of Dastan's Basment as one of the must-visit booths at Art Dubai 2018. Click here to read the full article.


Dastan’s Basement’s booth is always a wacky treat. The gallery, which has an extensive and experimental programme, focuses on Iranian Modern and contemporary art through its channels of the main gallery, Dastan+2 and Dastan:Outside. This year, it has overwhelmed its booth with a non-traditional installation of oversized wooden boards bearing artworks that can be turned like pages, as well as wooden flooring. By segmenting and creating nooks and crannies throughout the booth, the gallery has produced a micro-landscape that reads industrial and rugged, with endless surfaces to explore intricate works, including a video piece in the far left corner which plays a soundtrack only audible once nearby. Works on show are by Pouya Afshar, Shahriar Ahmadi, Fereydoun Ave, Farshid Maleki, Ardeshir Mohassess, Amin Montazeri, Farah Ossouli, Kour Pour, Iman Raad and Ali Akbar Sadeghi.
