Founded in 2014 by Orkideh Daroodi, O Gallery is currently situated in central Tehran, in a three-story 1960’s building, transformed into two separate exhibition spaces and a private viewing room. With a diverse roster of twenty-two artists, the gallery has become a leading voice in the span of seven years since its establishment with a dynamic schedule of physical and online exhibitions.
O Gallery is known as an incubator for young and emerging talent, as well as presenting works of leading established artists in all media from Tehran and other cities in Iran to the primary market, both locally and internationally.
The gallery program also includes major pop-up shows in other cities intended to extend its program outside the conventional white cube. Additionally, through working with prominent curators and intellectuals, the gallery is committed to supporting educational programs to encourage further discussions in the field of contemporary art in the region. As part of its program and to further promote its artists, O Gallery has launched its own line of monographs, with four titles published to date.
