The Eurasian Cultural Alliance public association has been representing the heritage of one of the most significant artists of Central Asia, Moldakul Narymbetov, for 8 years. Narybmetov began his career as a drawing teacher at Special School No. 31 in the Tashkent region in the 1970s and for 40 years of his career masterfully mastered the techniques of painting, sculpture, video installations and performance practices as a leader and members of the legendary art group Kyzyl-Tractor. The works of Moladkul Narymbetov were presented in such important institutions as the Museum to them. Abylkhan Kasteev in Almaty, the National Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan in Astana, the Erart Museum in St. Petersburg, MANA Contemporary in New Jersey, and also at the ACAW Asian Art Week in Dubai on the territory of Alserkal Avenue.
After the artist suddenly left in the winter of 2012, the Eurasian Cultural Alliance committed itself to further manage the heritage of Moldakul Narymbetov with a deep focus on the academic awareness of the role of Moldakul and its impact on future generations of Kazakhstani artists. We held about 10 exhibitions with his participation, and also supported the creation of publications in Russian and English in such international media as Ocula, Art Asia Pacific and Brooklyn Rail.
The year 2018 was very difficult for the Moldakul family in connection with the scandal about the non-return of his works from the exhibition as part of the Rukhani Zhangyru program and the unfair performance of the obligations of the project organizers Arman Tursunkulov and Bauyrzhan Kurmanbekov (vlast.kz)
The situation became more complicated after a tragic fire in the family house of Moladkul Narymbetov, which led to the death of his middle son Sakha, the complete destruction of the building and burns with which 2 other children were hospitalized. We are trying to provide urgent help to his family and for the first time in these years we are selling some works left by the artist to us. We are looking for private and public collections around the world, with the desire to expand the presence of this significant artist in those collections that appreciate and understand the modern art of Kazakhstan.
We ask you to purchase one or several works of Moladkul Narymbetov and, thereby, help us support his family in this difficult moment for all of us.
