Baku, June 24, AZERTAC
YARAT Contemporary Art Space has presented the "In This City of Bright Fires" group show at the ARTIM Project Space.
The exhibition brings together Azerbaijani artists from different generations who reflect on life in modern Baku through photography and video. These artists approach and observe the city with humour, sentimentality, seeming indifference and criticality and construct a narrative around some of the most relevant questions the city faces nowadays. The exhibition attempts to start a dialogue around the concept of a city, how the civil society should affect it and how art comes to play a role in those discussions.
Featuring artists include Eldar Akbarov, Zeigam Azizov, Rena Effendi, Orkhan Huseynov, Ehtiram Jabi, Samir Salahov, Sabina Shikhlinskaya, Seymur Seyidbeyli, Zamir Suleymanov.
The exhibition will also include photo books by Elturan Mammadov, Ehtiram Jabi, Samir Salahov, Seymur Seyidbeyli and Zamir Suleymanov produced in the frame of Ilkin Huseynov's workshop.
The exhibitions will be on view until July 10.
