LATT: Europe at Large #6 Rustam Khalfin & Almagul Menlibayeva
M HKA, Antwerpen
16 July 2010 - 29 August 2010
Since the collapse of the USSR, the European horizon in that direction has remained limited to Russia. We know very little about what is happening in the dynamic Central Asian states and in the Caucasian countries with ancient cultures. The Russian critic and theorist Viktor Misiano has for several years been working to support the artists of this region, which has resulted in some controversial exhibitions. He selected those artistic points of reference he considered most crucial, which included key works by the artists concerned. These works are shown in ensembles and will ultimately also be incorporated into the museum’s collection. The sixth and final presentation presents work by Rustam Khalfin (Uzbekistan) and Almagul Menlibayeva (Kazakhstan).
