Powered by InDrive ARTBAT Fest 11 is back, and this year it's bringing one project to the forefront: "Public Art - Art in Public Spaces." Running from September 14th to November 15th, this initiative aims to engage locals and tourists alike with art installations that question our perspective on the environment and society.
Focused on the theme of Anthropocene critique, the project explores the impact of human activities on nature and the climate crisis. Each installation serves as a visual commentary on the complex relationship between human actions, environmental consequences, and social dynamics.
The festival program, overseen by Almaty city administration, includes community art projects, murals, audio installations, film screenings, and ongoing initiatives. Public art will enhance multiple city areas, with a focus on Baizetova Street and intersections like Abay and Tole bi streets, featuring murals, augmented reality, graffiti, and temporary installations.
International artists, including Suarez Vargas Universal (USA/Kyrgyzstan), Birender Kumar Yadav (India), Renata Kaminska (Germany/Poland), Brinda Antonin (Czech Republic), Oksun Kim (South Korea), Lauren Moffatt (Australia), Saule Suleimenova (Kazakhstan), Saken Narynov (Kazakhstan), Aika Akhmetova (USA/Kazakhstan), Said Atabekov (Kazakhstan), Saule Duisenbina (Kazakhstan), among others, are participating in the festival.
