Art&Fact: Art Collections Parade
Exhibition of the Art Galleries and Art Saloons
at the A. Kasteyev State Museum of Arts

Over the 80 years of its existence the A. Kasteyev State Museum of Arts is not only the place for regular expositions and exhibition, but an experimental ground for new forms of the exhibition projects. From 1995 to 1999 our Museum initiated a Parade of Galleries Project that ran with the great success. The project attracted many fans and got a lot of feedbacks and discussions.

During the five years of its implementation the project became a large art event, kind of brand, famous to the wide audience. In 2009 we had a Parade of Galleries: New Version.

1At the present time A. Kasteyev State Museum of Arts initiates the revival the historical project - a Parade of Galleries - under a new name Art&Fact. Its major goals are still the same – to represent the leaders of galleries’ movement, the leaders making the art situation in the city. Over the last few years a number of galleries were closed, and a number of new galleries have emerged. Bringing together the leading city galleries on common ground of the museum will allow them to present their conceptions and priorities, to define the artists and to show their art works.

The conception of the project has slightly changed:
 Art saloons can also participate in the project together the art galleries,
 The geography of participants is expanding – apart from Almaty city galleries, art institutions from Astana and Bishkek will also participate in the project;
 We intend to publish brochure presenting the participants of the project.

Art&Fact Project has more comprehensive meaning than traditional exhibition, because it brings together on one space different galleries and names, styles and types of arts, personal and collective art conceptions. The project will be a festival of arts and an art forum. This event will allow to impartially assess the current art situation in the country. Each participant can conduct a presentation during the Gallery Day that will be identified by the Event Program. During the project’s closing we plan to conduct a Round Table on collections and collecting process, and the developments of the modern art market.2

The revival of the old project will help us to identify the art market’s current conditions, its outlooks, and in general its situation in Kazakhstan and the region.

Art&Fact will start in October 2015. The project will be implemented in the framework of the 80th Anniversary of the museum.

Tentative program:
October 2 – November 1 - exposition
September 28 – art objects’ delivery
September 1 – deadline for the text and illustrations submission by galleries for the event’s brochure .

All interested in participating please inform us before August 1, 2015.
