Iranzamin

Published

on

In a Powerhouse Museum first, this new exhibition will focus on rarely-seen artefacts from 19th- and 20th-century Persia. Iranzamin will feature ceramics, tiles, embroidery, carpets, armour, textiles and other hand-woven crafts from the Powerhouse Collection to tell the story of the people and culture of Persia through to modern day Iran.

The temporary exhibition will look at how traditional objects have influenced Australian artists, such as textile designer Florence Broadhurst. The opening also coincides with Nowrouz (Iranian New Year), and so there’ll be a special celebration to mark the day on March 20. There’ll also be an event on April 3 to mark Sizdehbehdar: the Persian national day for celebrating Mother Nature.
