Mojgan Endjavi-Barbé, was born in Iran. After her high school studies she left Iran to study political science and sociology at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, U.S.A. She lived 4 years in Paris, followed by 3 years in Tokyo and 10 years in London. She has been living in Geneva since August 2000.
She has worked with international artists since 1989. Her frequent travels to Iran made her realise how hard Iranian artists are working and to what extent they have advanced in expressing their skills and language. There is a great need for bridges between Iranian artists and western audiences. Simply viewing photo exhibitions, installations or videos of their work does not give an accurate portrayal of the message they are attempting to communicate today with their work.
Iranian artists are playing an increasingly important role in the art worlds of the Middle East and other regions. Their works are present at international art fairs, in world-renowned galleries and museums, at biennials and achieve impressive records at auctions.
Iran's youth represent 60% of the country's population of 74 million. We intend to represent a selection of some of the most promising emerging artists. Their energy and talent have given me the motivation to pursue this mission.
The promotion of Iranian contemporary artists internationally by placing their works in private and public collections.
The placement of the works of represented in selected art galleries internationally.
Encourating dialogue between Iranian artists and the international community of artists, critics, collectors, and the public.
We are actively seeking opportunities for young Iranian artists to complete residencies outside of Iran and to, in turn, facilitate residencies for non-Iranian artists in Iran.
We offer consultancy services to clients seeking guidance in navigating the contemporary art scene in Iran and those looking to build cultural bridges between Iran and the international community.
In order to realize the original ideas and projects of our artists in Iran or at art residencies around the world we seek funding support from patrons and collectors.
To encourage talented young artists, an annual award will be given out through a jury selection.
