May 23 Thursday talk Revival in the Post-Soviet era

Our event on Contemporary Azerbaijani and Central Asian art took place on 23 May 2019 in collaboration with Asia House London. The talk featured art historian Dr. Aliya de Tiesenhausen, Azerbaijani artist Asmar Narimanbekova and Caspia Contemporary's co-founder Afsana Tahirova in conversation with renowned curator and writer Rose Issa. The panellists touched upon the region's ever present link to its historic roots by expanding on the artistic movements under the Soviet regime and art's powerful revival in the Post-Soviet era.
