With the onset of summer it has become impossible to breathe because of the heat, however the heart beats and there is still enormous desire to engage in cultural activities. Accordingly, we offer:
3 Contemporary Art Exhibition in Tbilisi today.
Gallery Artbeat cordially invites you to the opening of group exhibition, “When I Wrote a Poem”.
Rooms Studio (Keto Toloraia and Nata Janberidze).
Curated by Natia Bukia.
“This exhibition is a first personal observation and attempt to seek its own ‘language’ in contemporary Georgian art. But instead of the result bringing answers, it poses questions. How much is it necessary for contemporary art to have an identity? And if it isn’t, how much can artists abandon this influence?” – Natia Bukia.
Opening: 24 June, 15:00-19:00
Address: Gallery Artbeat, 14 Pavle Ingorokva str., Tbilisi, Georgia.
The exhibition will be on 24 June – 5 September, 2021.
The artist is known to the public by the pseudonym KOSKA32. His graffiti with the inscription KOSKA is scattered all over Tbilisi in countless different forms, colour combinations and locations; Koska’s painting on canvas is unknown to many. It is his paintings that will be shown at the exhibition.
“This exhibition was planned before the pandemic last year and was scheduled for April 23 of the same year, but was canceled for various reasons. Many things have changed since the one-year regulations, for example “Fear”, my even earlier work expresses fear, but before the pandemic it conveyed something of the unknown, as if nothing but fear of everything, and was covered by a specific beginning, What has lifted the veil of darkness since the beginning of the pandemic, and what a prophetic function of expecting an unknown shock, has fallen, has led to the breaking of the existing concept, and since my aspiration is not just from exhibition to exhibition, But from work to work I will completely forget the previous one and start the next one from scratch, only a few works from the previous exposition have remained intact, I have gone into a few with additional details, I completely redesigned some of them completely different topics and came up with some completely new ideas. You will agree that this is not an easy task, but I had so many interesting, unbridled emotions, it definitely turned into hysteria and a very creative, passionate year came out, which is why this exhibition is so named: Covid Stories_ m.
The exhibition will last for 9 days.
Attendance is free.
