Showcasing more than one hundred works from professional Iranian contemporary artists, a new gallery dedicated to the works of renowned Iranian artists welcomes visitors in the 23rd international Quran exhibition. The paintings, calligrams, photographs and sculptures on display carry mystical and Quranic messages.

Earlier in the inauguration ceremony of the exhibition Mohammad Hossein Hashemi the Cultural Deputy of ICRO (the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization) called the fair a symbol of Iran’s many contributions to the Islamic world and sais that the Quranic activities were among the leading cultural and international programs of the organization.
