No Exhibition Opening

What kind of exhibition could come out of a two-week art residency with artists and curators from Armenia, Georgia and Ukraine? Given the turbulent context we all share as a common background and that often throws us out of our normal life routine, it is important to interact with others through a more adaptive format, rather than via a simple exhibition. As the result of a very honest and informal talk, we, the participants of this program, came up with the idea of “No Exhibition Opening”, but… This “but” could be anything: a space of co-existence, an environment for exchange, and so on. We kindly invite you to join us on 7th of December at ICA Yerevan to exchange ideas around a drink.
