The talk will be key for 2016 as Middle Eastern art continues to rise since the pivotal moment when Parviz Tanavoli became the Middle East's most expensive artist at auction in 2008 when his sculpture The Wall (Oh Persepolis), sold for £2.1 million at Christie's New York. See more realised prices for Tanavoli here.
