Artist Talk: Emily Mkrtichian & Alex Igidbashian


Our resident artists Emily Mkrtichian and Alex Igidbashian will make a presentation on Luys i Luso multimedia project. In the summer of 2015, Emily Mkrtichian & Alex Igidbashian followed internationally-renown jazz pianist Tigran Hamasyan on a musical pilgrimage through Armenia, Georgia and Turkey to document a series of concerts for his Luys i Luso [www.luysiluso.com] project. 

Throughout their residency at NESTand further on during their collaboration with an audio-visual artist studio in Berlin, they turned the piece into a multi-media installation which had it's premiere in Gyumri this last week. The filmmakers will talk about Luys i Luso, the context of the project in Armenia, and their own experiences while doing this and other projects in the last few years.
