Tbilisi 16, a project by Kunsthalle Zürich, shot by Dan Solbach
Tbilisi 16! In the first week of September the Kunsthalle Zurich relocated its programming to the outskirts of Tbilisi, Georgia. Here is what they planned to do:
Tbilisi 16 takes place in the small village of Shindisi, just above Tbilisi, on an empty lot of land on Merab Kostava Street where we will build a stage. There, on September 1, 2, and 3, a series of performances, concerts, presentations, and talks will be staged, open to the public, and for free. We daily start at 5pm and it runs until 9pm. On the last day, on September 4th, this festivalesque exhibition ends with a big dinner and an open microphone.
