A first selling exhibition of contemporary art from Central Asia and the Caucasus. It draws together 50 artworks from the mountains of the Caucasus to Kazakhstan's steppe and the Chinese borders. Artists represented hail from many of the region's republics, including Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Diverse artistic practices are on display from non-conformist to socialist-realist, right through to the forefront of emerging contemporary. They arise from the encounter of ancient historical heritage with evolving modern-day techniques.
