President receives principal curator of “Standard” International Triennial of Contemporary Art
President Serzh Sargsyan received today Adelina Jouberyan Phon Fürshtenberg, the principal curator for the first-ever Armenia-hosted “Standard” International Triennial of Contemporary Art. In 2015, Adelina Jouberyan Phon Fürshtenberg was awarded by President Serzh Sargsyan the 2nd Degree Medal for Services to Motherland for best presentation of the Armenian culture to the international community. She is the co-founder of the Armenian pavilion and winner of the Golden Lion in Venice’s 56th Biennale in 2015. The meeting was also attended by Vardan Karapetyan, Chairman of the “Standard” International Triennial and Commissioner for the Armenian pavilion at Venice’s 56th Biennale.
Thanking Adelina Jouberyan Phon Fürshtenberg for best presentation of the Armenian pavilion at the Venice’s Biennale, President Sargsyan highlighted and appreciated her participation in the initiative for the organization of the first international triennial in Armenia.
Adelina Jouberyan Phon Fürshtenberg thanked the President for a warm welcome, noting that she had brought along the Golden Lion award to Armenia with a wish to leave it in the Motherland. The interlocutors recalled President Sargsyan’s remarks delivered as the Master Prize was being handed in at the Biennale who said that the prize should be associated with Armenia in an exciting way.
It was emphasized in this connection that by following on the President’s wishes, they initiated the “Standard” Triennial of Contemporary Art in Armenia, which is a unique reflection of its link with our country.
