The premiere of a documentary “The Song of Earthen Colors” followed Mr. Ter-Khachatryan’s speech.

He stated his gratitude to the Cafesjian Center for the Arts for organization of his exhibition and particularly to Mr. Gerard Cafesjian for establishing in Yerevan an arts center that can be compared to famous Pompidou Center in Paris.
