DESCRIPTION

The Magic of Persia Contemporary Art Prize (MOP CAP) is a global search to identify the most talented emerging Iranian artists and provide an international platform for their career. Selected from over 120 nominees and exhibiting at the Royal College of Art, are the six finalists:

Farhad Ahrarnia
Mahmoud Bakhshi Moakhar
Vahid Chamani
Sahand Hesamiyan
Abbas Kowsari
Newsha Tavakolian

The winner will be selected by a jury whose members include leading figures from the Iranian and International art scenes: Kamran Diba, YZ Kami, Shirin Neshat, Julia Peyton-Jones, Parviz Tanavoli and chaired by Sheena Wagstaff.
Following an auction of the finalists’ works by Jussi Pylkkänen, President of Christie’s Europe and Middle East, the winner will be announced on Saturday 17th October 2009 during a cocktail reception at the Royal College of Art.
The MOP CAP winner will be awarded a solo exhibition at a leading London Gallery in 2010.
