Abstract:   Since the Islamic Revolution in 1979 overturned the Pahlavi regime in Iran, contrasted visual images have often been associated with the term, “modernization” and/or “Westernization”, and "Islamization". Nonetheless, continuity of both exhibition and reception of certain visual images is seen in the Museum(s). This presentation, while introducing my current research, examines the foundation and the development of Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art to suggest the insight into the aspect of continuity.
