 The 28th Annual festival of Alternative Art brings together works by 39 international and Armenia based artists. The starting point for the project is the work of Zabel Essayan, one of the most significant women of letters in Armenian literature of the beginning of the 20th century and prominent activist. Her literary and social heritage reveals a crucial question for many artists of our times: how does the artist divide themselves between the desire and need to create and their role and duty towards society? How can a romantic gesture become political?
The exhibition includes both existing and specially created paintings, photography, installations, videos, and performances.
