V&A and Iran Heritage Foundation Announce the Creation of a New Post
LONDON.- The V&A Museum and Iran Heritage Foundation announced that Dr. Moya Carey will become the Iran Heritage Foundation Curator, Iran Collections, in the Asian Department of the V&A. This new curatorial role is one of a series of positions created as part of Iran Heritage Foundation’s new programme of developing strategic partnerships with major academic and cultural organisations.

"Dr. Carey brings a wonderful combination of expertise, imagination and an in depth knowledge of Iranian art and culture," said newly appointed Iran Heritage Foundation Executive Director, Dr. Ladan Akbarnia. “Coming from a curatorial background myself, I am particularly excited about this important position and I look forward to supporting Dr. Carey in her new role.”

Of Dr. Carey’s appointment, Mark Jones, Director of the V&A, said: "The V&A and Iran Heritage Foundation have a long history of collaboration. The appointment of Dr. Carey was made possible through a generous grant from the Iran Heritage Foundation and will enable the V&A, for the first time, to devote the resources of a full time curator to its considerable Iranian collections."

Dr Carey earned her doctorate from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London in 2001. Since then, she has worked for a number of organisations with important Iranian collections, including the Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan Collection in Geneva, the Chester Beatty Library in Dublin and the British Museum in London; she has also taught at university level at Aga Khan University, SOAS, and at the Sotheby's Institute and Birkbeck College.
