A Collective Exhibit
March 15 – 30, 2019
Official opening: March 15, 18:30

The tendency of unrelated organisms to evolve similar characteristics under similar environmental conditions.

Convergence is a collective exhibit that features seventeen young artists working with divergent techniques, styles and subjects. The exhibition illustrates a dialogue where different approaches intersect and merge – sometimes in conflict and other times in harmony. Their common ground is not immediately visible. Besides sharing a generation- and with it, an education at the Yerevan Academy of Fine Arts- today, these working artists share a distinct network. From their studios, to the exhibition halls of the Artistsโ€™ Union, to international galleries across Europe and the post-Soviet space, these artists cross paths in different contexts. They have shaped a resourceful community that has learned to thrive in the liminal space between institutions and makeshift platforms, enabling their international exhibition in the face of a lack of infrastructural support.

This shared reality represents both a physical and theoretical context whose conditions have woven a subtle, yet palpable, thread across their works: a tendency toward narrative compositions, bold line, anxious undertones, and a primary color palette that recalls the modernists before them. Their classical training is evident, yet a playfulness and propensity towards experimentation can be seen in the unique choice of materials (collage, synthetic resins, artist prints) and their manipulation into distinct spacial constructs. Convergence reveals a dissonant but harmonious dialogue that sheds light on the individual artists and the collective as a whole.
