The Anniversary of the Gallery Tengri-Umai



The exhibition from the Tengri-Umai collection opened in the Kasteev museum. The collection is being formed since 1999 and annually exposited in the gallery, including new and new names. It is one of the components of the creative program to form the new intellectual environment that will to preserve the traditional culture and develop artistic ideas.

On the basis of regular exhibitions in the gallery Tengri-Umai, according to the agreement with the authors-participants of the projects, the gallery thoroughly selects paintings purchasing most interesting ones to preserve and to demonstrate them at next exhibitions in order to form the collection of the public Modern Arts Museum of Kazakhstan in the southern capital.

In the result of the successive work to organize the exhibition since 1992 Tengri-Umai gallery formed the exhibition fund consisting of about 300 creations: paintings, graphics, sculptures, installation objects, etc., which are the spectrum of creative potential of the society represented by gifted artists.

Tengri-Umai does not pretend to present the absolute picture of the modern art of Kazakhstan, but, nevertheless, the gallery managed to collect key creations by different authors. The creation of such painters as Askar Yesdauletov, Andrei Noda, Almagul Menlibaeva, Nikolai Gazeev, Vadif Rakhmanov, Vyacheslav Lyui Ko, Zhumakyn Kairanbaev, etc. has become an integral part of the national culture. The Modern Arts Gallery Tengri-Umai is an independent exhibition and a creative space. The absence of any competitiveness, free choice of creative conceptions, and different tasks impart the gallery�s projects with the importance of a cultural center. Despite such a structure depends on the economic and moral condition of the society, the gallery Tengri-Umai has proved its viability and that it is continuously following main creative principles.
