"Trans Atlantic Art Message" Exhibition
Other events
8 October – 4 January
"Rakurs" Gallery, 2nd floor

The exhibition "Trans Atlantic Art Message" is dedicated to the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Commander Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías, and his contribution to the brotherly relations between Venezuela and Belarus through the artwork of famous Belarusian artist Alies Rodzin, who has taken part in numerous exhibitions in Belarus and abroad.

The "Venezuela" series creates an image of the country, stands out with its multi-layered synthesis of national images-symbols of the cultures of Venezuela and Belarus. The artist's distinctive style, his signature technique of lines and dots and detailed fragments reveal the plots of the works in the exhibition: universal doom and apocalypse, mythologemes, astrological devices, prototypes of time, universal themes, etc. The great number of details, saturated with allegories, makes you closely examine the works and gives you a secret insight into the essence of what is being conceived, into the complex space of the author's personal world-perception, which must be "read" and deciphered.

The "Trans Atlantic Art Message" project invites you to reflect, to remember a moment of encounter with yourself and your subconscious, to reflect on the value of good relationships, past experiences and sincerity. Through the language of images, art breaks down boundaries and builds bridges, creating a shared space.

The exhibition was organized by the Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in the Republic of Belarus and the National Library of Belarus.

Admission is by the library card or by the Social and Cultural Centre ticket.

The exhibition is located in the gallery "Rakurs" (2nd floor) through January 4.
The end date is subject to change.
