The Auction Room is the first London-based auction house to conduct online auctions in the Contemporary Middle Eastern market.

Janet Rady, the specialist in charge of the auction, has commented, “in recent years there has been a huge surge of interest in the region and we are delighted to be filling a gap in the current market. With estimates ranging from £1,000 to £60,000, the auction provides the perfect opportunity for a variety of collectors from all parts of the world to participate”.

The auction features works by well-known and up-and-coming Arab and Iranian artists, including: Ahmed Alsoudani, Lalla Essaydi, Diana Al-Hadid, Khosrow Hassanzadeh, Ramin Haerizadeh, Hayv Kahraman, Shirin Neshat, Ali Shirazi and Soheila Sokhanvari. A selection of works come from the critically acclaimed exhibition: Unveiled: New Art from The Middle East held in 2009 at the Saatchi Gallery, London.

Many of the works confront the political and social issues of the artists’ native countries with a clarity and bravery which, in several cases, has resulted in exile or arrest, whilst they also draw clear influence from and take great pride in their county’s artistic heritage and legacy of decorative arts.
