Dear art lovers and collectors,

We invite you to (re)discover ICA's Capsule at the Katapult Pavilion through a special guided tour by the exhibition’s curator, Lilit Grigoryan. The tour will take you on a journey through this creative labyrinth, following a thread of symbols and hidden meanings. Participants will get to know more about the artworks’ history, discover the artists’ universe, and learn about the curatorial process. Katapult Pavilion, a creative industries expo, is an annual event and marketplace aiming to showcase Armenian products and projects spanning the creative sectors of visual arts, creative technologies, design, architecture, fashion, print, and the performing arts. All artworks showcased in ICA's Capsule are available for sale.

The guided tour will start at 2PM, April 8th, at HayArt Cultural Center. See you there!

“From Thread to Fabric: Material Transformation” Capsule presents the artworks of four

Armenian artists: Araks Sahakyan, Armine Atoyan, Mary Badalian and Aleksey Manukyan.

Curated by Lilit Grigoryan and supervised by Nazaret Karoyan The exhibition explores the

relationship between contemporary art and traditional techniques, such as needlework and

carpet waving. Each artist expresses the concept of thread through different means – from line

drawing on paper to metal wires constructions, from mixed media painting to embroidery and

carpets. On his way to becoming a fabric, the thread follows a path of cooperation, where a

multitude of different threads – each unique in essence, but inseparable from the whole –

come together to wave a new narrative. Hence, the exhibition artworks manifest the ability of

the artists to be part of a community – a "Collective Genius" that shares common ideas,

materials, skills, and tradition.
