ISOLATION! Urbanization versus Wildlife Exhibition opens at Sasuntsi Davit Garden Gallery of the Cafesjian Center for the Arts on March 12 at 15:00.  

The exhibition ISOLATION! Urbanization versus Wildlife is a visual presentation of the alienation of man from nature. Artists presented at the exhibition explore the animal world and wildlife, drawing on their imagination and human experience. Capturing the playful, yet serious essence of the wild, the exhibition draws the viewer into the natural world. 
The pivotal work at the exhibition is Frederick Prescott’s kinetic sculpture, New York. A vivid example of today’s urban overdevelopment. The kinetic, dynamic appearance of the "city" is in sharp contrast to the quiet presentation of animals and nature, opening a meaningful dialogue about the human environment, both natural and urban. 

"The exhibition, ISOLATION! Urbanization versus Wildlife, expresses the importance of understanding the impact of urban sprawl upon the world of nature, encouraging the viewer to reestablish a relationship with its inhabitants", stated Vahagn Marabyan, Acting Executive Director of the Cafesjian Center for the Arts. 

The Cafesjian Center for the Arts (CCA) is dedicated to bringing the best of contemporary art to Armenia and presenting the best of Armenian culture to the world. Inspired by the vision of its founder, Mr. Gerard L. Cafesjian, the Center offers a wide variety of exhibitions, a unique works of modern art and offers a diverse program of visiting lecturers, films, concerts, and numerous educational initiatives for children and adults.
