Exhibition Dedicated to the 90th Anniversary of Grigor Khanjyan Opens at CCANovember 11, 2016
The Cafesjian Center for the Arts presents essential layers of Grigor Khanjyan’s artistic legacy with which the public was not entirely familiar. The exhibition, Grigor Khanjyan: Beyond Image, includes graphic sketches revealing the history of the artist’s creation of his famous monumental works. Grigor Khanjyan became one of the creators and leaders of the national narrative focused on new national and folkloric iconography and the ethno-modern direction in Soviet-Armenian art.
“This exhibition provides a basis from which to renew our appreciation for this great artist and patriot Grigor Khanjyan’s role and invaluable contribution to the cultural life of our fatherland. As in the not too distant past, so also today, through his art, Grigor Khanjyan continues his patriotic mission for present and future generations of Armenians”, - said Vahagn Marabyan, the Acting Executive Director of CCA.
The exhibition dates are November 10, 2016 to February 19, 2017. Public admission started from November 11, free of charge.
