Mazda Publishers - Amazingly Original: Contemporary Iranian Art at Crossroads

Abbas Daneshvari
Abbas Daneshvari Professor Abbas Daneshvari is the former Chair of the Department of Art and a Professor of Art History at California State University, Los Angeles. His publications cover various aspects of Islamic art's iconography as attested by his books "Animal Symbolism in Warqa wa Gulshah" (Oxford University Press), "Medieval Tomb Towers of Iran" (Mazda Publishers), "Of Serpents and Dragons in Islamic Art: An Iconographical Study" (Mazda Publishers) and many articles on the iconography of Islamic art. Professor Daneshvari is the editor of "Essays in Islamic Art and Architecture in Honor of Katharina Otto Dorn" (Undena Publications) and the editor of volumes 17 and 18 of Arthur Upham Pope's magnum opus, "A Survey of Persian Art" (Mazda Publishers). He is also the author of a forthcoming book on contemporary Iranian art. Like these recent books, this new volume by Daneshvari (California State Univ., Los Angeles) explores how past artistic trends have informed the work of contemporary Iranian artists. Conversely, these publications show how some of these artists are breaking their ties with traditional Persian styles to openly address the sociopolitical atmosphere of today's Iran. What makes Daneshvari's input outstanding is his formalist style of writing-a close reading of contemporary Iranian art in absolute rather than subjective terms. A more careful analysis of how Iranian artists are appropriating global artistic trends might reveal that their works are not so "amazingly original. However, Daneshvari reasons that this originality predominantly ensues from transcending the Islamic Republic's restrictive institutional practices and irregular art market.
