Building on the foundations of Firouz FarmanFarmanian’s post-tribal explorations,
‘Gates of Turan’ proposes a multilayered installation-exhibition
exploring Central Asian archaïc tribal culture through the
transforming prism of contemporary practice.
Will unveil for Venice Biennale 2022
Gates of Turan and We R the Nomads Agency & Foundation welcomes Princess Noal Zaher of Afghanistan on the committee as a partner and boardmember. We will work alongside to raise awareness for Aschiana Charity in support of Street Working Children of Afghanistan.
Craftland is an online quarterly published magazine centred around Craft, Culture and Tourism of Iran. It is a land with no borders in which the imaginary boundaries devised by politicians do not confine Iranian culture and art. It is the narrator of Iranian artists and culture. Craftland supports Firouz Farmanfarmaian in his mission to reach the Gates of Turan.
Gates of Turan Support Committee is happy to welcome Amir Cyrus Razzaghi, Entrepreneur, Writer and Editor in Chief + Co-founder of Trends Magazine. We thank him for his support and this first publication.
In our endeavor to raise funds & secure partnerships in view of Gates of Turan Venice Biennale 2022, we are happy to announce our official cultural collaboration agreement with the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic.
