ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS: THE SOUTH CAUCASUS PHOTOGRAPHY, PART I
One of the strengths of the TPF is its ability to transcend the political differences between South Cau-casian nations and unite artists and photographers through the medium of the image. For 2019, the TPF continues this tradition by bringing together authors from across the region into one exhibition space to exhibit over 20 projects from Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Across the Mountains: South Caucasus Photography, Volume I, the show includes various genres - from documentary and photojournalism, to multimedia, video and art projects - that exist on the verge of contemporary art and photography. The aim is to promote the new generation of South Cau-casian artists working on tough topics that mainstream society often overlooks. These topics include evolving traditional values, gender (with a focus on women rights and masculinity), conflicts, immigra-tion, minorities, and marginalization.
Series by Nata Sopromadze, Dina Oganvova, Rena Effendi, Sitara Ibrahimova, Mery Aghakhanyan, Areg Balayan, Ahanit Harapetyan curated by Ana Shpakova.
