On the eve of the professional holiday of financiers of the Republic of Kazakhstan, a traveling exhibition from the collection of the funds of the National Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan “Sounds of Centuries” opened on the territory of the EXPO

The purpose of the exhibition is to popularize the fine arts of Kazakhstan on the international platform and expand the area of exhibition activities. Delegations from foreign countries, foreign investors, AIFC participants, etc. will be able to visit the exposition and get acquainted with the work of Kazakhstani artists.

The exhibition is dedicated to the work of contemporary artists and combines many plastic practices in painting, sculpture and graphics based on the transitional content of traditional art of the 1980s-2020s. The exposition presents works which compositional subjects are intertwined with the past, present and future of Kazakhstan.

The organizers of the exhibition noted that in each decade of the period under review, Kazakh art developed on its own way, while attention to the problems of mutual influence of traditions, customs and heritage remained unchanged. Artists working in different styles and directions, using different “plots” have one common origin, a certain synchronicity of development, love and respect for plots, customs and traditions from the history of the Kazakh people.

The exposition presents works by artists of the XX-XXI centuries: E. Tulepbaev “City in the steppe” 1985, K. Akhmetzhan “Torangy” (on verses by Abay) 1995, A. Smagulova “Craftswoman” 1999, B.
