The opening remarks of the exhibition were delivered respectively by Professor Fahreddin Sadıkoğlu, NEU vice Rector, and Faiz Sucuoğlu, the Minister of Labor and Social Security.

Works of Graphic Arts Have Unmatched Features…
In his opening remarks, NEU Vice Rector Professor Sadıkoğlu underlined the crucial role of art in adding color and vividness to social life and stated that 35 artworks that created by the two talented Uzbek artists would be donated to Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts.

Expressing that Uzbekistan ranked the second place after Turkey among the Turkic republics, Professor Sadıkoğlu stated that Uzbekistan was a Central Asian and Turkic country, which had great contributions to science, culture, art and history. Touching upon that the names of awards determined within the framework of the Alasya Awards given by the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts were from today’s Uzbekistan, Professor Sadıkoğlu talked about Al Burini and Mimar Sinan.

“In 998 AD, two fellows, one of whom was 25 years old and the other was 18 and who were living in a region which encompasses modern-day western Uzbekistan, and northern Turkmenistan mailed each other. In his letter, Al Burni; famous mathematician, physicist, astronomer, psychologist , ethnographist, anthropologist, historian, and geographer, directed the question ” Is there another solar system with life on it in the stellar system or are we alone?” to Ibn Sina (Avicenna), a world genius and one of the most significant physicians, astronomers, thinkers who made great contributions to psychology, social sciences, mathematics, music theory and medicine. Ibn Sina replied that there was no certain answer for that question. The work of art and culture created by people living in Uzbekistan and in other Central Asian lands have been given as a gift to the world and contributed greatly to the development of art” noted he.

Expressing that the two painter brothers lived in different regions of Uzbekistan, Professor Sadıkoğlu underlined that their graphic art works were unique and took a worthy place in the collection of the art museums of many countries across the world. They paint unmatched artworks by using special colors and paints. They develop new techniques and provide great contributions to the art of painting. We are about to experience the joy of a significant exhibition consisting of very distinguished graphic artworks” said he.

Minister Sucuoğlu: Near East University Achieves Leadership in Every Field that She Involves in…
Expressing that he had been present at the opening of an exhibition at Near East University for the third time, Faiz Sucuoğlu, the Minister of Labor and Social Security, stated that it was a great pleasure and happiness for him. Expressing that Near East University had achieved leadership in every field she engaged in, Minister Sucuoğlu stated that NEU’s accomplishments were praiseworthy. “It is necessary to thank the Near East family. Regardless what field she involves in, leadership is aimed. Near East University Women’s Basketball Team has crowned our country by becoming the champ of Turkey’s Basketball Cup, Turkish Women’s Basketball Super League and FIBA EuroCup. Now, the University has steered the wheel towards establishing a world brand museum having the largest and richest collection of artworks created by the talented artists of the Turkic World. Near East University ranks the top three among universities in Turkey in terms of scientific publications; this is a clear indicator that it can be achieved when it is aimed. A significant step is being taken in cultural terms to break the embargo imposed on the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. The exhibition of the paintings of the artists who came here and represented their countries is an important contribution to the recognition of our country” said he.

Expressing that he would contribute to such events with great pleasure and happiness, Dr. Faiz Sucuoğlu, Minister of Labor and Social Security ended his remarks by stating that he firmly believed that the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts would sustain its being pre-eminently in Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

Following the award ceremony, Uzbek artist Muhammad Fazilov addressed the attending body: “As two brothers, we are opening our solo exhibition with you. Art is the occasion that brings together not only individuals but also peoples. Each of the works in the exhibition encompasses philosophical reflections of long years of experience as well as material and spiritual experiences of humanity. The exhibition, which has a historical meaning and which will also take place under the umbrella of the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts, will strengthen the bonds of friendship and brotherhood of the Turkic peoples and ensure their integrity. We feel the happiness of contributing to the purpose of this mission that initiated by the Founding Rector Dr. Suat Günsel. We wish you continued success” said he.
