Central Asian Project

09 February 07 - 01 April 07

A Visiting Arts funded project. Central Asian Project is a unique collaboration between Central Asia and the UK, dedicated to forging new links between the art communities in both these regions through artists’ residencies, cultural exchanges and exhibitions. Co-curated by Anna Harding, Kathy Rae Huffman and Yuliya Sorokina, it showcases work from UK artists and some of today’s most influential artists from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. The exhibition draws attention to the similarities and differences between culture and contemporary art in these regions with works that deal with subject matter as diverse as Muslim prayer, Kazakh eagle hunters, the phenomena of Naomi Campbell, and punk romantic shamanism. From Fri 9 February to Sun 1 April
