Iran has held a poster exhibition to mark the 4th anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street protest movement in the US.
Organized by the art department of Iran’s Islamic Development Organization (IDO), the event exhibits 36 artworks by international graphic designers at Abolfazl Aali Art Gallery in Tehran.
Josh MacPhee, Ray Cross, Jimmy Hendon, Colin Smith, Kevin Vancio, Rob Sheridan, Brian Tatosky, Roberto Conti and Favianna Rodriguez are among the artists whose works have been displayed during the event.
The exhibition kicked off on August 29 and will run until September 5.
Iran had previously held a cartoon festival on the same theme in 2012. The event, which showcased works from 45 countries, aimed to support the Occupy Wall Street movement in the United States.
Occupy Wall Street was a protest movement that began on September 17, 2011, in New York City's Wall Street financial district. It was organized against social and economic inequality, greed, corruption and the perceived undue influence of corporations on the government.
The protesters were forced out of Zuccotti Park, where they had gathered on November 15, 2011. Failing to re-occupy the site, protesters started to occupying banks, corporate headquarters, board meetings, foreclosed homes, and college and university campuses.
The movement received global attention and turned into an international Occupy movement against social and economic inequality worldwide.
