A Taste of Gold is a solo exhibition by Berlin-based, Iranian artist Shahram Entekhabi. The exhibition takes its title from a work in the exhibition titled Golden (2011). The work is a large photograph of a Muslim woman elegantly dressed head-to-toe in Burqa and wearing boxing gloves. The traditional Islamic orthodox covering is, however, adorned with actual gold glitter on top of the picture's surface.

Continuing with the artist's exploration of Islamic culture in the world-at-large, Entekhabi's works in the exhibition mix humor with a critical eye in addressing exile, xenophobia and the tension arising from the clash of tradition and the contemporaneous, religion and the secular world, and ultimately between his native country of Iran and the West. The exhibition brings together works-on-paper, photography, and video. A Taste of Gold is the first solo exhibition of an Iranian artist presented in Mexico.
