Tehran, May 2015
Hoardings in the Iranian capital are normally reserved for ads, religious quotes or anti-US slogans. But, overnight, the Iranian capital has had a facelift. In a project which the city’s mayor hopes will encourage people to visit museums, the billboard ads have been replaced with artworks by renowned local and foreign artists. For 10 days, images by the likes of Pablo Picasso, René Magritte and Henri Matisse are turning the capital into a giant urban art gallery. Tehran’s citizens watch about 700 artworks on 1500 billboards in 10 days.
