Due to many artists’ requests, Passion for Freedom decided to extend the submission deadline to Friday 27th September.
We have been delighted with the number and quality of entries so far and want to ensure that as many people as possible have the time to deliver their works from overseas and various places.
Shortlisted artists will have an opportunity to exhibit works together with special guest artists: Mehdi-Georges Lahlou and Firoozeh Bazrafkan. Mehdi-Georges Lahlou is a French Maroccan artist who produces performances and installations that deal with humour both cultural identities and “gender”, to the point of dissolving the one in the others. Firoozeh Bazrafkan is an Iranian artist noted for making provocative statements celebrates the Islamic Revolution in Iran in her own way.
The works will be judged by the international Selection Panel including Anda Rottenberg (former Minister of Culture in Poland), Deeyah (Muslim Madonna from United States), Sarah Maple (well-known young British artist) and Nick Cohen (Journalist and Writer from UK).
