[Pictures]: First Contemporary Art Museum Opened in Kurdistan

ERBIL — The first museum to showcase contemporary art is now open in Kurdistan Region’s Koya.

During a ceremony attended by intellectuals and artists, the museum was opened on Saturday to receive local and international visitors interested in Kurdish art.

Rostam Aghala, a Kurdish painter, is the owner of the project who blamed the government for not showing any interest to help artists in the Kurdistan Region. He told BasNews that Aghala Museum is the result of his 9-year struggle.
