Iranian composer receives United Nations Art Award

Mehdi Rajabian, an Iranian composer, along with two other artists, received the annual United Nations Art Award for Minority Artists in 2023. Rajabian, who has been detained multiple times in Iran, is not allowed to leave the country, and the award was presented to him in absentia.

This annual award is given to three artists from different disciplines who have faced various forms of discrimination. The other two winners of this award are a Spanish painter and a visual artist from Nigeria.

In a message regarding this, Mehdi Rajabian said that happiness is a collective event and unfortunately, no one is happy here. The situation has completely changed after the recent protests. No award can be a measure of an artist’s artistic value, but it can certainly be a platform for the voice of human rights and artistic freedom.
