We stand by the women of Iran

The young women of Iran have astonished the whole world with their courage and bravery. They are unfolding the first feminine revolution in history with the progressive slogan of "Woman-Life-Freedom." 


Despite the brutal crackdown by the Iranian regime, they are demanding freedom relentlessly. People have been facing enormous violence. So far, over 400 people have been killed, including 60 children. Most journalists and human rights activists are in prison. The regime has unplugged the internet to stop the world from hearing their voice.


Young artists have been creating stunning forms of dissenting art during this uprising. Not being able to access the internet, they need us to "be their voice."


Sahar gallery is concerned about human rights violations and the bloodshed committed by the regime. We want to acknowledge their sacrifices and amplify their voices.


We are asking all women artists from anywhere to participate in a group show and be part of this collective effort to spread the word. The three best pieces chosen will receive $1,000, $500, and $500. 


This show is 100% not-for-profit. In case of sales, the artist will receive the proceeds minus the taxes.
