Kamo Nigarian: Schizopolis Exhibition Public Opening

September 19, 2015
The Cafesjian Center for the Arts (CCA) Announces the Opening of the Exhibition, Kamo Nigarian: Schizopolis, on September 19, 2015 in Sasuntsi Davit Garden Gallery. 

The relationship between power and madness is the uniting theme of the seventeen works by Kamo Nigarian (1950-2011) assembled in this exhibition for the first time. Surveying his artistic development between the 1980s and the 2000s, Schizopolis reveals Nigarian as one of the key anti-establishment figures of late 20th century Armenian art.

“The Cafesjian Center for the Arts is pleased to present the work of one of the key figures of late Soviet non-conformist art as part of the Center’s 2015 exhibition programming. The exhibition, Kamo Nigarian: Schizopolis, brings together a selection of rarely-seen works from the artist’s thematic series, as well as his iconic death-mask installation from the S. Merkurov Museum, offering a new view of Nigarian’s prolific artistic heritage and intellectual depth ” - said the Acting Executive Director of CCA Vahagn Marabyan. 

The exhibition will be on view from September 18 through December 20, 2015. Admission will be free on September 19 and 20.
