Commissioned by YARAT Contemporary Arts Space, A Drop of Sky is the 3rd Public Art Festival in Baku.
Artworks will be displayed at various locations throughout the city as well as through a web based technological component that explores the virtual public art platform. The festival will be accompanied by an education programme including a film club, artist talks and a two week workshop, ‘AA Baku school’ a collaboration with Architecture Association in London.
The festival investigates how contemporary artists and audiences perceive the rapidly developing natural, scientific and technological changes currently occurring in Baku and beyond. Taking inspiration from the poetry and thinking of Russian Futurist Velimir Khlebnikov, the festival explores ideas pertaining to poetry, philosophy, astronomy, logic and illogic.
In conjunction with the festival, a lively education programme of artist talks will commence in June.
