Events Description

The Qajar dynasty was characterized by flourishing new technology, converging cultural traditions and seismic social change. The Aga Khan Museum proudly presents stories of a culture in flux through Transforming Traditions: The Arts of 19th-Century Iran, an exhibition focused on the fascinating artwork of 19th-century Iran.

Transforming Traditions has been adapted from an exhibition organized by the Louvre and features art that speak of a dynamic, creative, and sophisticated country challenged to navigate competing cultural dynamics. Some objects reflect the conscious revival of local traditions and convictions, while others tell of an enthusiastic adaptation of state-of-the-art ideas and technologies

The exhibition features a wide selection of artifacts including life-sized portraits, lithographed books and photographs alongside intricate objects such as musical instruments, metalwork and ceramics.
