Museum on Call – Contemporary Art in Georgia

The Museum of Contemporary Art Tbilisi is a museum on move, a museum “on call” that tells various stories with photographic and video documentation of the previously selected works of Georgian artists. The museum is an attempt to re-think and re-evaluates important works of Georgian contemporary art and topics from new history. The Museum of Contemporary Art – Tbilisi investigates a contemporary art in Georgia in a socio-political and historical context that in its turn reflects the country’s latest history. Museum describes time through contemporary art. The project also challenges the traditional form of a museum and delivers contemporary art to the broad public in an experimental way.

Mariam Natroshvili is Tbilisi based artist and researcher. Since 2011 she works in collaboration with Detu Jincharadze. A key element of their art practice is a text written “off the page”. Mariam and Detu are founders of the museum on the move – Museum of Contemporary Art, Tbilisi. Recently they have founded platform of words Frequently asked questions, that involves all kinds of text-related formats. Mariam and Detu have participated in numerous exhibitions and festivals in Georgia, Turkey, Switzerland, Germany etc.
