Iranian Contemporary Art , an exhibition at the Barbican Centre, offers a glimpse into a world of art all but unseen outside Iran. Covering the 20 years before and after the revolution of 1979, the exhibition takes in the Spiritual Pop Art movement of the 1960s with its highly crafted canvases of abstracted calligraphy, through to exuberantly fresh work created since the liberalising of the regime in 1997. At the Curve Gallery, Barbican, until June 3, free. Tel: 020 7638 8891. Free gallery talks at 1pm on May 12 and 19; accompanying film season on women in Iranian cinema.
