ASTANA CONTEMPORARY ART CENTER.
EXPO 2017 ASTANA / KAZAKHSZAN.
Avantgarde was the lead partner for the EXPO 2017’ cultural highlight, the Astana Contemporary Art Center – or “ACAC”.
Our exhibition ARTISTS & ROBOTS, co-organized with our Paris-based curating partner RMN – Grand Palais, was a major visitor success featuring 17 artists from 13 different countries. Due to its big success, the ACAC was even prolonged beyond the closing date of the EXPO 2017, effectively turning it into a permanent exhibition location starting November 2017.
A living space,
with an interactive environment. —
Avantgarde also cooperated with the Moscow-based Garage Museum of Contemporary Art to create an interactive pavilion tracing the main exhibition theme into every layer of society by creating a sophisticated cultural & edutainment program for the public.
In summary, the ACAC welcomed 232.000 visitors in 93 days and hosted more than 5.900 events.
