At the Crossroads: Contemporary Art from the Caucasus and Central Asia

Sotheby’s first ever selling exhibition of Contemporary Art from Central Asia and the Caucasus draws together 50 artworks from the mountains of the Caucasus to Kazakhstan’s steppe and the Chinese borders.

Artists represented hail from many of the region’s republics, including Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

Diverse artistic practices on display, from socialist-realist to non-conformist, right through to the forefront of emerging contemporary, arise from the unique encounter of ancient historical heritages with evolving modern day techniques.
