Of Interest

Tamineh Monzavi. The Brides of Mokhber al-Dowleh, Tina, and Mashhad Bazar.
Exhibition: February 6-March 28, 2015 at Ars Libri Ltd. 500 Harrison Avenue Boston
Monday-Friday 9-6, Saturday 11-5

Monzavi began working as a documentary photographer in 2005, when she was 17. Since then, she has earned the trust of subjects who largely keep to themselves: drug addicts, the homeless, and a transgender woman, Tina, whom she met at a shelter in Tehran and then photographed for two years. Monzavi has been reprimanded by the a uthorities for her work, but she continues to explore difficult themes in earnest. The three black and white series on display at Robert Klein Gallery at Ars Libri showcase the depth and breadth of Monzavi’s talent.

In 2012, Robert Klein Gallery and Ars Libri began a long-term collaboration to mount exhibitions and, with their combined expertise, identify and present new artists to the international market. The Robert Klein Gallery will host satellite photography installations at our space at 500 Harrison Ave.
The Robert Klein Gallery will continue to hold regular exhibitions at 38 Newbury Street; installations at Ars Libri will supplement their shows with additional works and printed material. New installations at Ars Libri will open during the First Friday event each month.
