Belarusian artists conquer Paris again
The art project Zabor – the exhibition that travels from city to city. The ambassador of Belarus in France Pavel Latushka said that this project acquaints discerning and interested French audience with the Belarusian visual arts.
Many people in the world know the names of Marc Chagall, Chaim Soutine, Michel Kikoine, Pinchus Kremegne, who at the beginning of the twentieth century came to Paris to conquer the summit of Montparnasse and to become famous in the world as artists of the Paris School. However, not many people know that these masters were born and raised in Belarus.
Artists, whose works are represented in this exhibition, were also born and formed in Belarus. One hundred years later the art project Zabor brings to Paris works of contemporary Belarusian artists and offers to have a look at the Belarusian contemporary art in the format art walk.
Reproductions of eight Belarusian authors will take part in the project. Organizers of the exhibition sought to show to the Parisians and visitors the Belarusian art in its various styles and themes. Strolling along the quiet streets of Henri Martin, viewers can see the naive art of Siarhei Caval, a mystical realism of Viktar Alsheuski, the primitivism of Uladzislau Stalmakhau, the abstract art of Aliaxandar Dasuzhau and Vital Dzenisenka, as well as the conceptual works of Ruslan Vashkevich and Siarhei Hrynevich. Viewers will enjoy the reproductions of works for two weeks.
The exhibition was organized by the investment company "Zubr Capital", the Belarusian embassy in France and by the municipality of the 16th district of Paris.
