A contemporary art exhibition involving Georgian, Ukrainian and French artists has opened in Georgia’s Black Sea resort town Batumi to raise awareness of the similarities and differences between the three nations, the people and cultures.

On August 14 the Extreme Areas photography exhibition opened in Batumi; it was the final instalment of a three-part series that was first held in France in January then in Ukraine in April.

One of the guests who visited the exhibition was German photographer Swen Marquardt (centre). Photo by Contemporary Art Space Facebook page.

Organisers said the aim of the multi-national exhibition was to raise awareness of the three nations by comparing and contrasting the experiences, cultural and social activities of the artists.

The exhibition was a joint venture by France’s largest higher art school EESAB (École Européenne Supérieure d’Art de Bretagne), Ukraine’s Visual Communication School and Georgia’s Tbilisi Academy of Arts together with the Centre for Contemporary Arts (ССA) and the Trump Foundation.

The exhibition will continue until August 24, 2015.
