Talk: Leeza Ahmady: The Taste of Others: Contemporary Art in Central Asia
Leeza Ahmady gave a talk as part of her ongoing curatorial project 'The Taste of Others: Contemporary Art in Central Asia', intended at promoting the largely unknown artists of Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan.
Ahmady has presented numerous related exhibitions, screenings, and talks at various international art venues since 2003. With the support of the AAA Martell Contemporary Asian Art Research Grant, she returned to Central Asia in August and September 2005 to conduct further interviews with artists and curators, and collect up-to-date materials on the developing art scene. The dynamism and range of works by Central Asian artists appearing in global art forums contributes a fresh perspective on art and its practice and also redefines the Asian continent.
It was held on 19 April 2007 at Para/Site Art Space.
Presented by AAA.
