Participant Profile

Suburb Platform

Armenia
Yerevan

The Suburb Platform is an initiative of AICA Armenia and Mekhitar Sebastatsi Art School to provide local and international artists and curators with an open space to exhibit and discuss art projects and solo exhibitions. Because Suburb Platform doesn’t have a permanent location, its main activities (artists’ talks, workshops, discussions, presentations and screenings) take place in different places in Yerevan. Independent curator, Eva Khachatryan, directs the residency program.  As a researcher and curator, her work focuses on self-organization and autonomy in the field of contemporary art.  Eva initiates and directs educational programs for emerging artists and organizes local and international exhibitions, presentations, and seminars and visual art and electronic music exchange programs.
