“I organized the first international symposium of painting apart from all the conflicts of today’s world to give an opportunity to the avant-garde artists from different countries to work together with artists from Iran, get close, exchange, become friends and see the dynamics and effect of this colorful atmosphere on their artwork in the process,” Mythra Art Gallery director Mitra Jashni wrote in a catalogue for the symposium.
The subject of the symposium is “Artists for Interaction and Artistic Integration.”
