Your British-Uzbek Society
British-Uzbek Society is delighted to start the new year with the talk hosted by the SOAS Centre of Contemporary Central Asia and the Caucasus. The talk will be delivered by Alexey Ulko from Samarkand (Uzbekistan).
Title: Exploring Central Asian Identities through the Art of Today
This presentation explores how multiple overlapping identities in Central Asia manifest themselves in different art forms, including neo-traditionalist, realist, and contemporary art. Artists in the region face pressures from the lingering Soviet legacy, the perceived need to engage with ethnic traditions, and the demands of the international art market.
