Desertification in Art group exhibition

XanaduART is pleased to present “Desertification in Art”, a collection of socially conscious works of art curated by the New Century Art association. The exhibition will be on display at the gallery through June 27, 2011.

“Desertification in Art” exhibition includes multimedia works by Enkhbat Lantuu, Amarsaikhan, Undraa Vandan, Batzorig Dugarsuren, Ariuntugs Tserenpil, Enkhbold Togmidshirev and XanaduART gallery curator Zesee Sodnomtseren. The artists seek to address the problem of desertification in Mongolia  through contemporary art and to show the bitter truth about land degradation caused by human activities.

Works exhibited are deeply rooted in the imagery of the Mongolian steppe and the everyday life of nomads – our culture, our customs, our philosophy and the Mongolian way of thinking. In doing so, the exhibition presents a mix of traditional and modern approaches to contemporary art.  The artists hope that their works will raise awareness about the environmental issues that Mongolia faces and encourage people to protect the Mother Earth.

This exhibition is organized by the New Century Art association in collaboration with XanaduART gallery, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and Ministry of Environment of Mongolia.

“Arkhangai landscapes” group exhibition


November 15 – December 1, 2008
Opening reception: November 15, 2008 at 3 p.m.

XanaduART gallery is pleased to present a collection of landscapes inspired by the beautiful Arkhangai, Mongolia. In August, 2008 XanaduART gallery artists traveled to Arkhangai, visiting its many scenic sites, including the White lake of Terkh (Terhiin tsagaan nuur), Horgo mountain (an extinct volcano) as well as Arkhangai’s many other places of interest. Their impressions are hereby presented to the public.

The exhibition brings together works by Yo.Dalkh-ochir, S.Mashbat, D.Batzorig, T.Enkhbold, Z.Osokhbayar, B.Badral, B.Orkhontuul, D.Batkholboo, Ts.Odgerel and B.Ganbaatar. Given the artists’ background, the works presented greatly differ from the traditional Mongolian landscape school. While traditional landscapes tend to focus on the serenity of the Mongolian steppe, T.Enkhbold’s quasi-abstract expressionist paintings are full of energy and intensity. On the other hand, Z.Osokhbayar’s almost monochrome paintings impart an eerie sense of calmness in depicting the Horgo mountain surrounded by the lake.
