Abstract

This thesis reconstructs Iran’s participation at the Venice Biennale from 1956–1966. In examining the trajectory of artists represented, art works exhibited, and the critical reception, I argue that Iran’s presence at Venice during these years is crucial to an understanding of the development and legacy of Iranian modernism.
