Iranart: Kimia Nakhaei: The book Searching for Sense, Semiotic Analysis of Mehdi Sahabi's visual artworks, was released at Tehran’s Museum of Contemporary Arts, with the efforts of Mojdeh Art Gallery and the cooperation of Sahabi Foundation and the museum. Mehdi Sahabi's exhibition was held at the Tehran’s Museum of Contemporary Art in the fall of 2021 with the curatorship of Mojdeh Tabatabaie, which was accompanied by several specialized meetings. One of the meetings that was met enthusiastically by experts and art enthusiasts was the specialized meeting of "Semiotics " of Sahabi's works. During this meeting, three prominent French semioticians, Jacques Fontanille, Denis Bertrand, and Ivan Darrault-Harris, gave speeches and each of them carefully introduced Sahahi's enthusiasts to new aspects of his art works. These three articles were published in March of the same year in Tarbiat Modares University's Linguistic Essays magazine with the efforts of Hamid Reza Shaeiri. The importance of this approach and the need of the art community to know the semiotics approach and how to apply it to the artistic works, caused these three articles to be published in a new book titled " Searching for Sense ", a semiotic study of Mehdi Sahabi's visual art works. The translators of this book, Marzieh Athari Nikazm and Sohrab Ahmadi, translated the book in the first half of last year, the book was published with the help of Mojdeh Art Gallery and Sahabi Foundation and with the cooperation of Tehran Museum of Contemporary Arts. The head of the Academy of Arts, Dr. Bahman Namvarr Motlagh, mentioned this book as unique during the releasing ceremony at the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Arts. A considerable crowd was present at this event, so much that many had to stand up to watch this event in the Tak Cinema hall of Tehran Museum of Contemporary Arts
