I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, and as we head into 2016 I want to send you heARTy New Year’s wishes from all of us at Selections.
Last year came to an end with two major highlights, which we’re happy to share in this issue. The first was a week spent travelling through enchanting Iran and attending the opening of the magical exhibition Farideh Lashai: Towards the Ineffable at the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art. The second high point was attending the Rolex Mentor & Protégé Arts Initiative Arts Weekend, which took place in Mexico City in December, to celebrate the fascinating journey experienced by the seven mentoring artists and their talented protégés over the past year.
There are plenty of other features that are not to be missed in this issue, including an exclusive conversation with Ai Weiwei that touches on topics ranging from activism to Andy Warhol.
