A significant part of the artwork is presented for the first time or was created especially for this exhibition. Through the exhibition the Cafesjian Center for the Arts brings special attention and recognition to Armenian contemporary abstract art.

In the scope of the event, the exhibition, its concept and featured artists will be presented. The visitors will have an opportunity to ask questions and discuss the exhibition with the artists. The event will be concluded with a presentation of the exhibition catalog in the Eagle Gallery of the Center.
