Contemporaneity

Ahmady curated this video exhibition for the 2nd International Biennial of Arts at the Museum of Fine Arts Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, and Academy of Fine Arts Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Contemporaneity welcomed art that falls under the boundary of formal and conceptual contemporary art: what it is, who decides what it is, and the scope of its language, materials, ideas, and histories.

Artists: Lida Abdul (Afghanistan, USA) Michele Beck and Jorge Calvo (USA) Nikhil Chopra (India, USA) Cecilie Dahl (Scandinavia, USA) Ali M. Demirel (Turkey) Jacob Fuglsang Mikkelsen (Sweden/Denmark) Mariam Ghani (Afghan/Lebanese, USA) Roya Ghiasy (Afghanistan, USA/Europe) Muratbek Djumaliev and Gulnara Kasmalieva (Kyrgyzstan) Masood Kamandy (Afghanistan, USA) Sislej Xhafa (Kosova, USA/Italy)
