For mass-media

Azerbaijan is a Caucasian country located on the dividing line between Europe and Asia. Independent since 1991, Azerbaijan has been able to establish itself as one of the most innovative countries in the region.

Rooted in a thousand-year-old past, the contemporary art of Azerbaijan clearly reflects the country’s cultural character — one that is full of life, colour and contrasts. The combination of abstraction and figurative art also reveals the deep influence of the international and Soviet avant-gardes of the beginning of the twentieth century.

Fly to Baku presents one hundred works, most of which have been specially made for the exhibition by twenty-one artists. Exploring various media such as paintings, sculptures, installations, videos, photographs and performances, the exhibition is a snapshot of the Baku contemporary art scene, with its wealth, its abundance, its contradictions and its authenticity. It will lift the veil off this new emerging and highly promising artistic scene. So Azerbaijani contemporary art can be fully appreciated in its diversity.
