AN EXHIBITION OF URBAN ART WILL TAKE
PLACE IN CENTRAL ASIA FOR
THE VERY FIRST TIME AND WILL
INCLUDE WORKS OF ART BY LEADING
INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS

Art Platform curator19.90 have selected

Kazakhstan to host the largest Urban Art

show in the region. Kazakhstan is the heart

of Central Asia, a country known for its

high intellectual population and passion for

everything new and interesting. The Kazakhi

appreciate the masters of Urban Art, as it

is often relatable to their lifestyle and

cultural interests.

The Kazakhi have a love of knowledge and

pursue art, culture, and travel to truly

broaden their minds. They are always

looking for new forms of creative expression

often finding this through art.

Recently there have been more and more art

events in the region such as ‘Art Bat Fest’

and the exhibition ‘V Musee.’

The renowned Rasmus Ejaas Fisher from

Denmark is the lead curator for the show. He

is chief curator at Galerie Wolfsen and

oftenconsidered one of the lead figures in

Scandinavian Urban Street Art. Fisher’s

curatorial style is both dynamic and

interesting as he is both a professional

curator and a collector.

The show will take place at the

architectural masterpiece Almaty Villa

Boutiques and Restaurants of which many 

consider it to be the pearl of the city.

Artist Morten Andersen will headline the

show and will be having a live performance

at First President Park. The work that is

created will then be donated as a gift to

the citizens of the city as a memory of

the Urban Dawn exhibition. Other artists

that will be included are Misha Most from

Russia, young Danno, Loro Verz from

Brazil, STROK from Norway, ASHEKMAN from

Lebanon and many more amazing talkents

from all corners of the world including

Europe, Asia and America. On opening day

guests will have the opportunity to enjoy

a DJ set by Maiden Obey,

a curators art tour and a fashion

surprise in collaboration with an Urban

Dawn artist. An additional program will

take place through the month including a

movie premier, master classes, lectures

etc. Curator19.90 is an international

project that connects artists, curators,

developers, and new rising talent.

 «WE WANT TO CONTINUE THIS DEEP

INTEREST IN ART IN KAZAKHSTAN WITH

URBAN DAWN.WE HOPE THAT URBAN DAWN

WILL ACT AS A PLATFORM NOT ONLY AS

AN EXHIBITION BUT ALSO AS A PLACE

FOR ARTISTS BOTH NEW AND OLD AND

ART LOVERS EXPERIENCED OR NOT TO

COME TOGETHER TO COMMUNICATE. WE

WANT IT TO ACT A PLACE FOR OPINIONS

TO BE DISCUSSED AND EXPERIENCE

EXCHANGED. WE HOPE THAT YOUNG

KAZAKHSTAN ARTISTS CAN ALSO USE

URBAN DAWN AS A PLACE TO MEET BOTH

LIKEMINDED INDIVIDUALS AND

INTERNATIONAL CURATORS»
