caucas 1A new exposition “Art of the Caucasus Republics: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia” has opened at the A. Kasteyev State Museum of Arts of the Republic of Kazakhstan and will run till the end of December of 2019.

This exhibition is a continuation of a large project that began in 2017, whose goal is to exhibit a large collective of rare modern works from masters from these states, that once represented a much larger country - the Soviet Union. A collection of paintings and sculptures from Central Asia and the Baltic States has already been previously displayed with great success.

Transcaucasian countries are united, not only in regional placement, but also in a common respect for folk traditions, cultural and historical heritage, organic combination of national and modern art.

building museum 1On October 4, 2019, a Scholarly Symposium on Kazakhstan’s Crafts and Creative Economy will be held at the National Building Museum (Washington, D.C., USA) hosted by the Smithsonian Institution’s annual Craft2Wear Show. Leading scholars from the A. Kasteyev Museum of Arts will present papers at the symposium, co-organized by Professor Dr. Gulmira Shalabayeva of the A. Kasteyev Museum and Dr. Paul Michael Taylor of the Smithsonian with the great support of the Embassy of the Republic of Kazakhstan to US.

Kazakhstan’s crafts, stretching back to nomadic Saka-Scythian culture and the Great Silk Road, have attracted much attention from foreign scholars and museums.
