The exhibition features artworks by nine artists, according to IRNA.
“It’s a very difficult time. Not seeing each other has become the protocol of life these days. Art, however, is about being together, and in the days of distancing, we are still embracing art and artists,” said the secretary-general of UNESCO National Commission in Iran.
Hojjatollah Ayoubi called the exhibition, “the beginning of a path,” adding that “Of course, all calligraphers, from great masters to enthusiastic young artists, are all honorary members of this seventy-year-old organization. Here is the home of all artists and people of thought, wisdom and knowledge.”
Art will win over coronavirus and will break the distance. Art is about being together and seeing, he said.
“We owe this exhibition to the lofty thought and assiduous efforts of the master of art, Mohammad Heydari,” Ayoubi added.
The virtual exhibition will be available through the UNESCO gallery website.
