The general manager of Hoze-Honari (a center for Iranian and Islamic art and thoughts) said: "everyone who visited the exhibition confesses the new insights and approaches have been used by artists to express their ideas on Palestine."
The ceremony was held on the eve of Holy Quds Day on May 6, 2021.
He said: "Two planned events happened that based on which we decided to hold a contest, one of which was insult to the great prophet of Islam, supporting by some government specially French. At the same time we saw an American-Israel plan to normalize the relations of some Arabic- Islamic countries with Israel. Unfortunately it was welcomed by some Arab countries, but the intellectual of the region, artists and those who support oppressed people and justice do not think so.
No doubt, we knew that artists and those who do not support oppressive will react to such an injustice. This time, like on many other occasions, our master, Massoud Shojaei has had a good idea to hold a contest. The invitation was accepted by artists of 66 countries."
"The theme comes true, because artists proved that Palestine is not alone, it is not like a utopia or goal for just Iranian, but for all people.
I invite all people to visit this exhibition, on presence or online."
