This extensive gallery is absolutely inspirational! Both, the architecture and curation of the work provide an exciting inside into a range of developments in the contemporary art of the Balkan region. It draws from numerous influences of the Persian Empire, long standing cultural and religious traditions and, finally, Russian occupation. The impact of war in Nagorno Karabakh and a conflict with Armenia is also clear.
Due to the international profile of exhibits, I have also started to recognise some of the artists, whose work was on display in Tbilisi.
The work is very expressive with a strong narrative element. My head is buzzing with new ideas.
