The Museum of Modern Art in Astana is the fusion of Asian people’s cultures. And no wonder, since the capital of Kazakhstan is located in the heart of Eurasia. There, the portrait gallery of celebrities and ordinary people, landscapes and beautiful places of Asian nature, still life, genre scenes and philosophical reflections on life have been gathered.
The Museum is only 30 years old and over the years its collection of contemporary art has grown from 500 to 3,000 items. Originally the Museum of Fine Arts, it raised its status by the late 20th century and got down to expansion. Each year, the gallery exhibits the latest works by famous artists and paintings given as gifts by collectors of the city. Purchases from the ongoing art exhibitions are made on the regular basis. Today, the museum presents unique works of artists from Armenia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Belarus, Georgia, Russia and Kazakhstan. Under the roof of the museum you’ll discover the collection, which is seen not only as works of art but also as the philosophy and outlooks of the former USSR peoples.
