WEL COME NOTE


Dear Art Lover, We are pleased to welcome you to the second edition of the Armenia Art Fair, 2019 – a contemporary platform that showcases and connects Armenian and international art and artists, providing Armenia with the opportunity to contribute to developing international trends. It is our vision to help Armenia become known as a thriving and unique art destination worldwide, and we’re moving quickly. This year the Armenia Art Fair has gathered 35 galleries from across the world, including Armenia, Iran, Belarus, Ukraine, Israel, USA, Spain and the UK. New this year, we are excited to provide public access to academics, curators and art professionals from across the region through lectures, artistic performances, and educational programs via our expanded platform, ART WEEK 2019. One of our goals is to create an open dialogue through a platform that is both flexible and affordable. Our openminded nature has taken us across borders and language barriers, following the rich tradition of the Armenian culture. The 2019 Fair is pleased to continue working on collaborative projects which will unveil new talents and highlight new partnerships with international curators, art collectors and art professionals. This year, our cultural program will focus thematically on two important confluences in today’s art world: Art & Technology and Art & Investment. Highlighting the impact of new technologies in the cultural and creative sectors is especially important, as Armenia carries a strong science, technology and mathematics tradition. Check out the installation work by Polish artist, Przemyslaw Jasielki, who has collaborated with local students from Tumo Center for Creative Technologies, to create a piece

of art that is the physical embodiment of engineering, art and science. We also hope you make time to attend the lecture, A Love Story Between Data, People and Art, where Spanish designer Pau Garcia, examines the perception of data in politics and history. The Art & Investment section will feature special guest lecturer, Dr. Iain Robertson, Head of Art Business Studies at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London. His Art Talk, New Art and New Markets in Iran, India, China, South America and Southeast Asia, is one not to be missed. We are also excited to welcome German conceptual artist, Olaf Nicolai, with his sound performance, In the Woods, There is a Bird…, in partnership with Goethe-Zentrum Eriwan. Also watch for the special installation and project by the Eiva Arts Foundation, in partnership with the Armenia Tree project, presenting Know Waste, a monthlong project designed to teach children about waste reduction through hands on workshops and art activities, led by contemporary artist Arsen Navasardi. At the fair, please also enjoy the outdoor sculptures and installation by artists Mels Gevorgyan, Grigor Khachatryan and Manvel Matevosyan, as well as the design installation by Vasken Brudian, the founder of Ardean. We are also proud to support Intra Mental Health Center’s Anti-Stigma Campaign through their lecture, workshops and art installation by Samvel Saghatelian. Finally, the Armenia Art Fair would like to thank all participating galleries, speakers, artists, the press, our partners, and the support we have received from cultural organizations and sponsors for making it all possible. We trust you will find this year’s program diverse and inspiring, so please take your time to enjoy the show. The Armenia Art Fair Team
