Hi Dilda! Could you share something about your background? How did you get into curating?
"I am from Kazakhstan, but I went to Strasbourg to study art history. I mainly learned about historical European art like the Renaissance or Modern art. Curiously, it was only in Strasbourg that I got acquainted with contemporary art from my own country, because the local museum of Modern and Contemporary Art happened to organize an exhibition with Kazakhstani artists. It was a small community with no visibility: if you didn’t look for them, you would not find them. Meeting these artists had a huge impact on me, and I realized it made sense to start working with contemporary Central Asian art."
