::: VOICES ::: IRAN
An online gallery designed to provide a forum for submissions from Iran-based artists
As the seven institutions that make up the Alliance of International Production Houses, we would like to express our grief and horror at the brutal and inhuman behaviour exhibited by Iranian authorities against protesters fighting for human rights and gender equality in Iran. Each of the venues in our alliance has enjoyed deep connections to Iranian artists and artistic companies for decades. And now, under the title ::: VOICES ::: IRAN, we have launched an online gallery designed to provide a forum for submissions from Iran-based artists. In doing so, we hope to call greater attention to the struggles and dangers these individuals face. We are also eager to show our solidarity with prisoners and protesters in Iran, in this case by inviting Iranian artists to contribute their work to an ever-growing online platform. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that the protest maintains its visibility and continues to form a key part of the public discourse. The focus is initially on artists in Iran who do not have easy access to platforms. In order not to endanger any individuals, some of the contributions are published anonymously. ::: VOICES ::: IRAN is a project organised by the Alliance of International Production Houses and curated by Ozi Ozar and Sahar Rahimi.
