Who is Mayten’s?
Established in 2020 by Hirbod Human and Farnoosh Talaee aims to foster connection within art and bring impactful experiences with contemporary art to the public. Inspired by a desire to promote both international and domestic artists in the global context.
Structured to reinforce long-term institutionalization of public engagement in a wider scope; with a major commitment to nurturing the younger generation through distinguished programming.
What does Mayten’s do?
We offer a wide range of solo and group traveling exhibitions, a series of public events, lectures, special collaborative projects, mentorship, residency, and forward-thinking educational agendas.
We endeavor to go beyond the gallery white cube and utilize a distinct lens that breaks the solid outlines of commercial and institutional models by inviting communities to involve, participate, and sponsor each individual plan and artist toward accomplishing their purpose.
Who does Mayten’s represent?
We intend to contribute to the arts' vitality by developing sensitive and critical dialogues toward artistic practices and examining diverse cultural methodology. We seek artists interested in the horizontal decision-making process, critical thinking, and innovative approaches that evoke discussions among artists and society, including specialists from various disciplines to expand the sensitivity to the political and social contexts in which their practice is inserted.
