Azer News - - Country Guide - By La­man Is­may­ilova

To cap­ture your in­ter­ests and in­spire your imag­i­na­tions all YARAT re­lated venues (in­clud­ing YARAT Cen­tre, Azer­bai­jani Paint­ing Mu­seum and ARTIM Project Space) opened the doors on and abound with festive at­mos­phere on the Mu­seum Night – "Night in the Mu­seum-Con­quer the Night" on May 26.

The event was at­tended by the founder of YARAT Con­tem­po­rary Art Space Aida Mah­mu­dova, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of cul­ture and art, cre­ative in­tel­li­gentsia and youth, Trend Life re­ported.

Within the frame­work of the project "Night in the Mu­seum - Con­quer the Night!" - spe­cial en­ter­tain­ing pro­grams, cre­ative lessons, lec­tures, fa­mil­iar­iza­tion with ex­po­si­tions were pre­sented.

Paint­ing, mu­sic, theater, fash­ion, installation - the project "Night in the Mu­seum - Con­quer Night!" unites all kinds of art and cre­ates a unique at­mos­phere.

The night was filled with ex­cit­ing ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing "Be who you want to be" body art pro­gram and "Walk­ing Etr­uscan sculp­tures".

In col­lab­o­ra­tion with "Az­er­cos­mos" com­pany YARAT pre­pared a con­test "Hu­man or na­ture?".

With great en­thu­si­asm, visi­tors cre­ated a col­lec­tive work in­spired by Aida Mah­mu­dova’s solo ex­hi­bi­tion "Non-imag­ined per­spec­tives".

Aida Mah­mu­dova’s ex­hi­bi­tion based on the author's ex­per­i­ments with var­i­ous ma­te­ri­als, is pre­sented on the sec­ond floor of YARAT Con­tem­po­rary Art Space.

For the artist the process of de­struc­tion and re-cre­ation, of build­ing lay­ers and tear­ing them apart, of mix­ing var­i­ous ma­te­ri­als, such as pa­per, clay, ce­ment, stone and, for the first time in this show mar­ble, becomes an ex­er­cise for ma­te­rial growth and emo­tional healing. The to­tal installation of sculp­tures, re­sem­bling crum­bling pil­lars, and mon­u­men­tal wall works cre­ate a feel­ing of a tran­sient place, half ru­ined and half built, and one is re­minded that en­tropy is an es­sen­tial step of cre­ation.

A col­lec­tive work in­spired by Miсhe­lan­gelo Pis­to­letto’s solo ex­hi­bi­tion "Do it" was also pre­sented as part of the event.

"Terzo Par­adiso" (Third Par­adise) is a manifesto for a har­mo­nious fu­ture where na­ture and so­ci­ety co­ex­ist. ‘Third Par­adise’ states the so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity to seek a more sus­tain­able world, lead­ing every­thing that is ar­ti­fi­cial; that is sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy to­gether with art; to give back life to Earth’.

Later that night guests watched a mes­mer­iz­ing fire per­for­mance, a sur­prise per­for­mance by ADO Col­lec­tive.

The theater team show­cased new forms of con­tem­po­rary the­atri­cal and per­form­ing arts. The pro­duc­tion tells about the love of two home­less peo­ple.

The cast in­cluded Elmin Badalov, Elsa Fur­tado and Sabir Mam­madov.

Fur­ther, visi­tors took part in a master class on cre­at­ing self-por­traits from flow­ers, giv­ing vent to their imag­i­na­tion

The event was held at the 20th21st Cen­tury Azer­bai­jani Paint­ing Mu­seum.

One of the lead­ers of the master class, the florist Lala Sa­far­aliyeva, told Trend Life that the project "Night in the Mu­seum - Con­quer Night!" - this is a won­der­ful ini­tia­tive.

"It's won­der­ful that in the frame­work of" Night at the Mu­seum - Con­quer Night ", there are many dif­fer­ent events - master classes, fash­ion shows, live mu­sic. The more peo­ple come and join art, the bet­ter. The idea of our master class is in the fact that its par­tic­i­pants first draw a por­trait or a self-por­trait, and then dec­o­rate it with fresh flow­ers. "All par­tic­i­pants en­thu­si­as­ti­cally ap­proached the work," Sa­far­alieva noted.

Fur­ther, par­tic­i­pants of the night saw a fash­ion show by a lo­cal de­signer and col­lec­tor Nata­van Aliyeva, who also de­liv­ered a talk on the sub­ject of "How does fash­ion re­flect our per­son­al­ity?"

The de­signer be­lieves that col­lec­tion in­ter­preted the theme and con­cept of how fash­ion af­fects our in­ner self.

Aliyeva stressed n that fash­ion plays a very big role in life. It is im­por­tant that ev­ery­one should pay at­ten­tion to what he puts on that af­fects our choices.

As Nata­van Aliyeva noted, such events as "Nights in the Mu­seum Con­quer Night!" pro­vide a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate, see col­ors and de­velop.

YARAT Con­tem­po­rary Art Space also in­vited art lovers to en­joy an ex­hi­bi­tion of works by lead­ing Azer­bai­jani artists at the 20th-21st Cen­tury Azer­bai­jani Paint­ing Mu­seum.

In ad­di­tion, guests were de­lighted by mu­si­cal per­for­mance of Kam­ran Rza­yev (vocal), Nar­giz Aliyeva (piano), Ibrahim Babayev (tar), Oya Er­gun ( flute) and Ma­ham­mad Mam­madli (ac­cor­dion). The mu­si­cians per­formed mag­nif­i­cent mu­sic com­po­si­tions and retro hits.

Then the par­tic­i­pants of the event were sur­prised with the fiery show and the per­for­mance of DJs Nasa Ma­reena and Farhad Farza­liyev.

More­over, guests im­mersed into the ex­hi­bi­tion by "Ma­halla" col­lec­tive un­der the same ti­tle. Af­ter the open­ing, visi­tors en­joyed the rhythms of elec­tronic mu­sic.

The part­ners of the Mu­seum night "Con­quer the Night" event in­cluded Sea­side Boule­vard De­part­ment, "Az­er­cos­mos" LLC, Enoteca Mey­dan, Nata­van Ap­parel, ADO Col­lec­tive, Fleuriste flower bou­tique. YARAT also ex­presses grat­i­tude to Port Wine & Grill and Maya/La Vida restau­rant for spe­cial of­fer on May 26.
