Maryam's painting "Cloth Cage" was selected for inclusion in the 6th annual Passion for Freedom Art Festival that took place in London from 5th
-15th November in the Embassy Tea Gallery (close to Tate Modern) in London.
The annual festival is a rare collection of works of “courageous artists” who have answered three pivotal questions:
What is freedom?
How easy is it to lose it?
How difficult is it to get it back?
This year at the festival there was a collection of 15 films, 10 books, 10 journalists and 51 artworks from all over the world: Peru, Venezuela, Iran,
Israel, Syria, Taiwan, China, South Korea, Ukraine, Poland, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, Spain, Sweden, Italy, Greece, United Kingdom, USA & Australia. The youngest artist is 18 years old, the oldest 64. Some of the artists use pseudonyms because of threats imposed on them, some of them could not attend because they are imprisoned, cannot leave their country or cannot give interviews.
Passion for Freedom has a positive intent, celebrating the freedom that some of us enjoy whilst remembering that many others do not have the same freedoms of movement and expression. We were happy to support and to contribute to this interesting and culturally and artistically diverse event.
