Kazarian Art Center
Kazarian Art Center is one of the largest galleries in Kazakhstan. It is a platform for various art exhibitions and events. The Art Center began its work in November 2015, thus filling in the lack of large exhibition spaces and expanding the geography of active art in Almaty.
The space of the Art Center consists of gallery halls located in three levels as well as the creative studio (Kazarian Art Studio) for children and adults where famous Kazakh artists conduct classes on ceramics, drawing and painting and other creative subjects. Kazarian Art Center also acts as organizer of national and international art events. Thus, in 2017, with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Sports of the Republic of Kazakhstan, we have organized and held the First Eurasian Sculptural Biennial in Astana within the framework of the cultural program EXPO-2017.
Kazarian Art Center gallery presents a wide selection of works by Kazakhstani and foreign artists, sculptors, photographers, from Art Nouveau to Contemporary art. We exhibit both classical and conceptual art, from monumental to small-scale artworks.
The goal of students’ practice of students al-Farabi KazNU at Kazarian Art Center was to provide the grounds for creating professional competencies for the trainees to work as social managers, and to provide the opportunity to gain practical experience in our field.
Students were directly involved in the activities of the Kazarian Art Center which helped them to consolidate their theoretical knowledge with their major and minor disciplines. The practical skills acquired by the students will be useful in any organizational activity in their future career. The trainees also had the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in philosophy of personality, aesthetics, ethics, social anthropology, logic, rhetoric to preparation of exhibitions, lectures, presentations and discussion sites in accordance with their curriculum and the training program.
