EXPO-2017 – Successful final at the Astana Contemporary Art Center
EXPO Art Pavilion will continue to be managed as a contemporary art museum
(Munich/Astana, 14 September 2017) Close to 3.9 million visitors attended the world exhibition that has just come to an end in Kazakhstan’s capital, focusing on tomorrow’s energy supply. FUTURE Energy was also discernible at the Astana Contemporary Art Center (ACAC) and the adjoining Creative Energy Area (CEA) – venues where the creative forces emerged in collaboration between Avantgarde and the internationally renowned museums Rmn-Grand Palais and Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, together with international and local artists as well as other creative talents and disciplines. A total of 232,493 visitors are a compelling argument in favor of continuing to run the institution as the first museum of contemporary art in Kazakhstan. For this EXPO-2017, the Munich Creative Agency Avantgarde was the general contractor of the Astana Contemporary Art Center and Creative Energy Area. These are two cultural pavilions solely initiated by the Astana Expo National Company 2017 itself.
