2016 Nomadic Art Camp

2016 Nomadic Art Camp

The Nomadic Art Camp 2016 took place on the shores of the mountain lakes Son-Kul and Issyk-Kul in the Tien Shan foothills and the Ala-Too Square on the Great Silk Road. Participants explored how the environment can affect their professional activities using art as a means of expression. They pondered the art’s power of change by depicting the situation today and its threats and how they would like it to be, and assessed in which way art represents our current, past and present culture.
The results of this incredible undertaking were presented at the Exhibition of Contemporary Art “Too & Suu” (Mountain and Water) in the Kyrgyz National Museum of Fine Arts named after G. Aitiev in which took part artists from Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Turkey, Switzerland, Austria, Israeli, Russia, France, Germany, Liechtenstein and Denmark. The exhibition juxtaposed nomadic, Soviet and modern capitalist culture with the purpose of drawing public attention to the diversity of cultures, as well as inviting respect for nature, traditions and heritage.
