The Third Line is pleased to announce recently — Abbas Akhavan’s third solo exhibition at the gallery. 

A collection of recent works, the exhibition lies somewhere between an open studio, an index, an inventory, a table of contents and a periodic table. Put on display are material explorations related to the artist’s ongoing research and concerns about the environment, animals, saints, weapons, and property, to name a few. Despite their overlap in materials and concerns, these works are shown in their own right without an over arching thematic narrative or a curatorial objective.
