Ocula has recently published an article on presentations at Art Dubai 2018. Click here to read it in full.

From the Article: "Indeed, while attending the fair stayed within the safe realm of the neatly curated white booth, Dastan's Basement from Tehran upended the commercial exhibition form for the second year in a row. The entire space was covered in plywood and featured three human-size wooden magazines hanging on the walls, similar to structures used in museums for storing art. These vertical hand-operated display machines not only highlighted the gallery's programme of connecting the history of Iranian illustration, drawing and graphic design with the practice of contemporary painting, but also multiplied the floor space of the booth.Among the works was an original drawing of a group of standing men in traditional Iranian attire from the 1970s by pioneer illustration artist Ardeshir Mohassess."
