On September 4 Erarta opened the exhibition “Eurasia” — a joint project of Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art and Eurasian Cultural Alliance (Almaty)
According to Viktor Misiano, an experienced curator of similar projects at the Venice Biennale, the phenomenon of contemporary Central Asian art has recently attracted international interest. Several years ago, Kiasma Museum (Helsinki) hosted a large exhibition of Central Asian Contemporary Art. Finally, St. Petersburg is welcoming the first exhibition of contemporary Kazakh art.
“Eurasia” features paintings, drawings, video art and installations by such famous Almaty artists as Saule Suleimenov, Kuanysh Bazargaliev, Moldakul Narymbetov, Arystanbek Shalbaev and others. The exhibition also includes works by a Berlin-based artist Almagul Menlibaeva. The authors cover a wide range of problems and demonstrate a variety of approaches from ironic versions of identity to nostalgic reflection on the slipping away time.
The exhibition of contemporary art of Kazakhstan "Eurasia" is a joint project of Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art and Eurasian Cultural Alliance (Almaty).
