Iran’s art has been presented in all accredited international art events and “the private sector is supporting the process.”
The official stressed the importance of biennials in introducing the art of different countries and said: “International media, museums, and galleries take part in such events. We want Iranian art to be showcased in this biennial to represent an almost complete array of contemporary art.” He also noted that the private sector will assist in the process.
