Nada’lian said, “According to the agreement signed between the two bodies, it is programmed to hold environmental art workshop in five provinces of the country with a new approach.”
According to IRNA, Nad’alian added, “Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus and the need for social distancing, we decided to hold a virtual workshop on contemporary arts instead of a face-to-face festival. The selected artists will exchange text and audio or video files.”
He added, “Unlike previous editions of the festival which were permitted only for the members of the projects, one of the most important merits of such workshops is their possibility for public participation.”
The Islamic Republic of Iran has already held 61 editions of the Festival of Environmental Art in Iran, of which the 60th edition coincided with the 26th edition of the International Youth Visual Arts Festival in September 2019 in Iran’s western province of Ilam, and the 61st edition in December 2019 in the central province of Yazd coincided with the first national conference on methods of presentation in new arts.
