Two artworks by Avish Khebrehzadeh acquired by the Albertina Museum

M77 wishes to congratulate Avish Khebrehzadeh (Tehran, 1969) on the recent acquisition of two of her important installative artworks by the Albertina Museum in Vienna.

Located in the historic heart of the city of Vienna in the building that was the largest residential palace of the Habsburgs, the Albertina combines imperial charm and extraordinary artistic masterpieces of enormous historical and artistic value and international resonance.
The artworks that have become part of the museum’s prestigious collection are Theater + A Swim (2006) and Distant Memory I (Sleepers) (2004). Both are video installations projected on an oil and gesso painting in the case of the first artwork and on a drawing realized with the skillful use of graphite, olive oil and varnish on paper for the second piece acquired.
