گالری شیرین در ادامه مشی حمایتی خود از هنرمندان جهان در همکاری مجدد خود با انجمن مجسمه سازان ایران سالانه " مجسمه در میانه " را تیر ماه 1394 برگزار می کند.
هدف از برگزاری این مجموعه حمایت و پیشنهاد هنرمندان زیر 35 سال مجسمه سازی به جامعه تجسمی است . بنابراین مولفه های انتخاب هنرمندان بیش از آنکه به ابعاد پلاستیک آثار متمرکز باشد رفتارشناسی و استفاده متنوع مدیومی از مجسمه را پی جوئی می کند تا امکانی باشد برای قطعاتی که به شکل معمول امکان عرضه آنها کمتر در فضای گالری ها پیش می آید.
مجسمه های حاضر هر چند همه گونه های این مدیوم را در بر نمی گیرد اما نوعی نشاندهنده جریان حاضر در میان هنرمندان جوان مجسمه است و گالری شیرین مفتخر است تا این را مقدمه ای بداند برای ظهور هنرمندان نو در این عرصه ، شایسته است در این مقدمه کوتاه از همه هنرمندان و هنر شناسان و به طور اخص انجمن مجسمه به خاطر همراهی بی دریغشان سپاسگزاری نمایم.
انجمن هنرمندان مجسمه.ساز ایران بر این باور است که ایجاد فضای مناسب برای حضور هنرمندان جوان در رقابتی سالم باعث رشد و اعتلای این هنر شده و تلاش می.کند با حداقل امکاناتی که در اختیار دارد به بهترین نحو به این امر دست یابد. نمایشگاه هنرمندان زیر ۳۵ سال که اولین دوره.ی سالانه.ی خود را سپری می.کند از آن دست فعالیت.هایی است که شایسته..ی این تلاش و سرمایه.گذاری می.باشد.. امیدواریم با برگزاری چنین نمایشگاه.هایی بتوانیم در هر دوره هنرمندانی جوان و مستعد را به جامعه.ی هنری معرفی کرده و در این راه از هیچ تلاشی دریغ نخواهیم کرد.

Shirin Gallery Tehran is pleased to announce our upcoming show named “Mid Sculpture” in July of 2015. This exhibitions will present works from emerging Iranian artists Under the age of 35. It is our goal to give these artists a venue they may not otherwise have had to exhibit their works. We are hoping this exhibition will bring forth a whole new approach to the art of form. Through the use of various mediums, these young and up and coming sculptors will tackle subjects that are socially relevant to their generation. We would like to thank the experts at the Association of Iranian Sculptures, for without their tireless effort and guidance this exhibition would not be possible.
The Iranian Association of Sculptors believes that by creating an appropriate venue for the involvement of young artists in a healthy competition, it will enrich the art of sculpture and help it grow. The association tries to create this opportunity in the best way it can despite the limitations they face. The exhibition of the artists under the age of 35, which is the first of its kind, is a good example of the investment and efforts the association is making in promoting the art of sculpture. We hope that by putting this exhibit together, we can introduce and promote these promising young artists.

Overview and HistoryTehran is the capital of Iran and the largest city in the Middle East, with a population of fifteen million people living under the peaks of the Alborz mountain range.Although archaeological evidence places human activity around Tehran back into the years 6000BC, the city was not mentioned in any writings until much later, in the thirteenth century. It's a relatively new city by Iranian standards.But Tehran was a well-known village in the ninth century. It grew rapidly when its neighboring city, Rhages, was destroyed by Mongolian raiders. Many people fled to Tehran.In the seventeenth century Tehran became home to the rulers of the Safavid Dynasty. This is the period when the wall around the city was first constructed. Tehran became the capital of Iran in 1795 and amazingly fast growth followed over the next two hundred years.The recent history of Tehran saw construction of apartment complexes and wide avenues in place of the old Persian gardens, to the detriment of the city's cultural history.The city at present is laid out in two general parts. Northern Tehran is more cosmopolitan and expensive, southern Tehran is cheaper and gets the name "downtown."Getting ThereMehrabad airport is the original one which is currently in the process of being replaced by Imam Khomeini International Airport. The new one is farther away from the city but it now receives all the international traffic, so allow an extra hour to get there or back.TransportationTehran driving can be a wild free-for-all like some South American cities, so get ready for shared taxis, confusing bus routes and a brand new shiny metro system to make it all better. To be fair, there is a great highway system here.The metro has four lines, tickets cost 2000IR, and they have segregated cars. The women-only carriages are the last two at the end, FYI.Taxis come in two flavors, shared and private. Private taxis are more expensive but easier to manage for the visiting traveler. Tehran has a mean rush hour starting at seven AM and lasting until 8PM in its evening version. Solution? Motorcycle taxis! They cut through the traffic and any spare nerves you might have left.People and CultureMore than sixty percent of Tehranis were born outside of the city, making it as ethnically and linguistically diverse as the country itself. Tehran is the most secular and liberal city in Iran and as such it attracts students from all over the country.Things to do, RecommendationsTake the metro to the Tehran Bazaar at the stop "Panzda Gordad". There you can find anything and everything -- shoes, clothes, food, gold, machines and more. Just for the sight of it alone you should take a trip there.If you like being outside, go to Darband and drink tea in a traditional setting. Tehranis love a good picnic and there are plenty of parks to enjoy. Try Mellat park on a friday (fridays are public holidays), or maybe Park Daneshjou, Saaii or Jamshidieh.Remember to go upstairs and have a look around, always always always! The Azadi Tower should fit the bill; it was constructed to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire.Tehran is also full of museums such as:the Contemporary Art Museumthe Abghine Musuem (glass works)the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museumthe museum of carpets (!!!)Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniaturesand most stunning of all,the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.Text by Steve Smith.
