Over 24 Thousand Historical and Cultural Monuments Registered in Armenia
/PanArmenian.Net/ There are 24 143 historical and cultural monuments on the territory of Armenia at present and they are described, examined and protected by the state, head of the Agency for Preservation of Historical and Cultural Monuments at the Ministry of Culture and Youth Affairs of Armenia, professor of architecture Artem Grigoryan told a PanArmenian.Net reporter. In his words, New monuments add to the already registered monuments each year.
«Our Agency works to study and describe monuments not only in Armenia, but also abroad, especially in countries bordering Armenia. The latest forum of the ICOMOS (International Council on Monuments and Sites) in Beijing in 2005 adopted a resolution on restoration of the temple on Akhtamar Island in Turkey. According to the rules, Armenian restorers and architects should take part in the restoration works. However, as we do not have diplomatic relations with Turkey, the Armenian party addressed the UNESCO for assistance and, as you know, we were on Akhtamar a few times. The works are suspended now and it is not clear when they will resume,» Grigoryan said.
Armenia Takes Part in Second Beijing International Art Biennale
Yerevan, October 25, Azg Armenian Daily. Karen Aghamian, head of Artists' Union of Armenia, painters Felix Yeghiazarian and Karen Hovakimian took part in the 2nd Beijing International Art Biennale from September 20 to October 20. The Biennale drew participants from 60 countries with 500 pieces to exhibit. If the 1st Biennale in Beijing put up only the canvases of contemporary artists then the second one also exhibited the works of Matisse, Van Gogh, Renoir, Sezan, Modigliani, Picasso, Delacroix, Manet, Courbet and Utrillo. The works of Italian, Russian and Uzbek artists as well as impressionists and classic artists were displayed each in a separate hall.
The Biennale, coordinated by Vincenzo Sanfo, president of the Cultural Centre of Italy, is a wonderful chance to introduce China and the Chinese art to the world. Karen Hovakimian also took part in the previous Biennale presenting 3 of his canvases. But this time all of Armenian participants exhibited 1 painting each.
The participants of Biennale had chance to acquaint with Chinese culture. They visited UNESCO-protected Yellow Mountains in Anhui province with arch-modern hotels on the height of 2.700 meters.
"The touch to great Chinese culture is very important. The Chinese painting is very impressive; you can hardly find the same skilfulness in lines and tint in European art. China is a separate world where we still can find human relationship and national face. Taking the best from the world they keep their traditions and national identity. Beijing of 15 million population is simply shining with cleanness. And the city wonderfully combines national architecture with modern trends," Karen Hovakimian says.
