Investigating the Contemporary Iranian Art is an attempt for a systematic analysis of Iranian art, culture and society, which has been fairly neglected in the realm of research. In this book, the author, Hamid Keshmir Shekan has connected the modernist art, modernism and culture in an attempt to analyze and explain decades of Iranian art tradition and, in this way, arrive at an understanding of its contemporary art. The author refers to the importance of the present century in Iranian art and culture, where the heritages of tradition and modernism have been critically analyzed and revised. The book, while bringing up various issues in the study of contemporary art, reconsiders the link between art and socio-cultural issues. It is developed in six chapters, dealing with issues such as non-Western modernism, the meaning and concept of contemporary art in the context of Iran, and the response of the Iranian artist to the concept of modernism.
