Modern Works from Azerbaïdjan – Introduction

      Under the High Patronage of

The Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaïdjan in France

and the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, Baku, Azerbaïdjan

“The museum of modern art of Azerbaijan in Baku is a New Age architectural masterpiece in the middle of the beautiful cityscape of Baku posed majestically on the shores of the Caspian Sea…

Although only a stones throw from Turkey and Iran, Azerbaijan is driven into Global community by an altogether different motor, an unparalleled energy and a unique vision.
These attributes are clearly present in the Thirty Four art works with which we have chosen to captivate and mesmerize spectators in the extraordinary backdrop of the recently restored Hotel Evreux.

This diverse and highly remarkable array of styles both figurative and abstract from the past 40 years validates the incredible modernity and contemporaneity of the Azerbaijani art scene and its place in the mainstream of international contemporary art.”
