Summer Seminars for Art Curators 2010 Report - Part One Posted by Michelle Kasprzak

Saturday, September 11. 2010 • Category: Musings

Recently I attended the Summer Seminars for Art Curators, which is hosted annually by AICA-Armenia. We spent three days in the Armenian capital of Yerevan, and a further four days in Ijevan, in the north near the border with Azerbaijan and Georgia. The themes of the two seminar events were “Aesthetic Communities and Contextual Translation of Communal Art” and “The Communal Function of a Monument”.

Armenia is a fascinating country, but I will not go into too much in detail about it here (I intend to post thoughts about Yerevan in particular on the Spacing Wire shortly). However, it must be said that the post-Soviet-ness of Yerevan is striking, and the beauty of the countryside is extraordinary. It was wonderful to get to see both Yerevan and Ijevan, and all the landscape and important points of interest in between. You can see my photos from the seminars and general sight-seeing on Flickr.
