In 2012, Robert Klein Gallery and Ars Libri began a long-term collaboration to mount exhibitions and, with their combined expertise, identify and present new artists to the international market. Azita Bina, a Boston-based chef and restaurateur, was born in Tehran, Iran, and lived there until the 1970s. Returning regularly to her homeland, Bina maintains close ties to the Persian art community and possesses an informed understanding of contemporary Iranian artists. Together with her husband, Bina personally collects Persian art and books from the 8th century to the present day. In 2013, Robert Klein Gallery and Ars Libri partnered with Azita Bina to introduce Western collectors to the work of contemporary Iranian artists -- in particular, contemporary Iranian photographers.
