Tavoos Art Magazine Website
Tavoos Art Magazine is a daily online journal published by Iranian Art Publishing founded and directed by Manijeh Mir-Emadi (Nasseri) in 1992. This online journal was created following the pause in the publication of Tavoos Art Quarterly.
Iranian Art Publishing specializes in the publication of fine, high quality bilingual (Farsi and English) art books featuring Iranian artists.
Due to the absence of a specialized journal dealing solely with Iranian art and artists, in 1999, Iranian Art Publishing began publishing the Tavoos Art Quarterly with the aim of presenting a clear picture of Iranian art in the fields of painting, architecture, sculpture, photography, cinema, theater and music. Through a series of analytical articles presented by most renowned scholars in each field, the Quarterly stood as a comprehensive, bilingual encyclopedia on Iranian art.
Six volumes of Tavoos Art Quarterly were successfully published receiving exceptional reviews and feedback from scholars and art enthusiastes worldwide. In March 1999 in a meeting with Federico Mayor, UNESCO General Secretary, he praised the work of Iranian Art Publishing and donated 20 series of this publication to cultural centers in Iran’s neighboring countries.
In 2001, with another six volumes and a few special editions ready for print, due to various reasons the publication of the Quarterly ceased. Following the pause in the publication of Tavoos Art Quarterly, Tavoos website (www.tavoosonline.com) was put into operation posting 110 newsletters on a monthly basis and at first only in English. Through this website, Tavoos continued to represent significant art activities of Iranians throughout the world by maintaining its relation with artists, art trainers, art centers, universities, libraries, galleries and museums both inside Iran and abroad.
Recently the site was reconstructed in such a way as to cover art news bilingually (Persian and English) on a daily basis.
The site is designed and organized in the following way:
The bilingual Tavoos website intends to turn into one of the most viewed websites
Tavoos website appreciates and welcomes all kinds of cultural and artistic exchanges.
