This is the poster for my upcoming show of photographic essays and installations by Tbilisi State University students from the Humanities Faculty. I'm very excited to be curating a show and as far as I know it is the first time that visual anthropological methods have been used in a conscientious way in Georgia. This image is hot off the press so I welcome your comments. It is a slightly adapted version of a photograph by Nino Chkhutiashvili. These are female members of a Jewish dance group, one of many different ethnic performances during the city festival of Tbilisoba.
So, in case you might happen to be in Tbilisi on the 21st of January, the show is hosted by the Georgian National Museum at the illustrious "Karvasla" or Ioseb Grishashvili Tbilisi History Museum at 5:00. It is next to Sioni Church in the old district (8 Sioni Street), a great location near Chardin, where "cafe/bar life" is defined in Tbilisi. The exhibit will continue until February 1st.
