The conference titled “Iran, Art and Society” was held with Dr. David Galloway, the former chief curator of Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, founded in 1977, on the 5th of November, 2011. Art in Iran is often categorized as “Middle Eastern” or “Islamic”. However, by considering art in Iran in relation to the worldwide art scene by focusing on the role of museum, the conference aimed at deepening the discussion of how to write the world history more effectively. Firstly, Dr. Galloway introduced the cultural background. Secondly, Terada Yuki interviewed Dr. Galloway and asked about the relation between the art in Iran and the worldwide art scene.
