In 2016 Überlingen, Germany will host the exhibition “Armenia – Past and Present: Painting and Photography 1975-2015” dedicated to the Armenian Genocide Centennial.
Sona Harutyunyan, Head of the Cultures in Dialogue Foundation, told the journalists that the exhibition will feature works by three generations of artists.

“The exhibition will include works by Vazgen Bazhbeuk Melikyan, Kamo Nigaryan, Narek Avetisyan and Ovsanna Shekoyan and Vahan Rumelyan from a younger generation. The latter is a prominent artist of Armenian abstract art. Armenian photography will also be showcased: Gagik Harutyunyan’s works will be at the exhibition,” Harutyunyan said.

The Armenian artists have been selected by a German curator. They all have contributed to the development and promotion of Armenian arts, Harutyunyan said.

The exhibition will be open June – November, 2016.

“We have intentionally chosen the date. Since there have been numerous events and exhibitions dedicated to the Armenian Genocide Centennial this year, we decided to hold the exhibition next year to keep the emotions and expectations high and signal it is not only during the Centennial we must speak about the Armenian Genocide. Every month and year we must prioritize this question,” Harutyunyan said.

The Cultures in Dialogue Foundation will hold a series of events both in Yerevan and abroad to commemorate the centenary of the Armenian Genocide. On May 11, 2015 Halle will host Tigran Kirakosyan’s exhibition “Voices from the Past.” It will feature twenty monotype works. In October artists from Armenia and Germany will take part in a project dedicated to Armin Wegner’s letters on the Genocide, with another exhibition featuring Estonian graphic artists to be held in Yerevan in June.

All events to mark the Armenian Genocide Centennial highlight the concept of rebirth and revival, Harutyunyan believes, and through these exhibitions they seek to show Armenians continue existing, living and creating.

“In November we have planned to open an exhibition featuring Armenian, Icelandic and German artists. The exhibition “Now We All Together” held in Bonn, Germany will be dedicated to the Armenian Genocide,” Harutyunyan said.
