9th Tbilisi Annual International
Contemporary Art Exhibition and
November 4-14, 2016
ARTISTERIUM is a Tbilisi annual International Contemporary Art Exhibition and Art Event organized by the Georgia-based non-governmental art organization Artisterium Association. The event is composed of international exhibitions, individual art projects, educational and cultural programs. ARTISTERIUM hosts the artists, artist groups, curators and art critics from around the world.
The previous projects of contemporary artists from Europe ignited a special interest from Georgian audiences. Due to the importance of introducing the Georgian contemporary art scene to internationally-crafted approaches to multimedia art-practice, the Artisterium aims at creation of a platform for exchange on the ever-shifting, ever-challenging state of contemporary art and culture.
ARTISTERIUM is supported by the Ministry of Culture and Monument Protection of Georgia. International culture organizations functioning in Tbilisi, such as British Council, French Institute and Goethe Institute have partnered with the event since its establishment in 2008.
