An exhibition of works by seven contemporary Azerbaijani women artists, Born to Love is a reinterpretation of the principles of the time, imbued with the history of Azerbaijani culture and trends in modern technology. The discovery of nature, life, and the Universe poses enormous challenges to humans. We would all like to better understand who we are, where we come from, and where we are going – we would like to focus on something bigger than ourselves and more significant than the latest electronics or fashion. The Covid-19 pandemic turned the world upside down. Quarantine has reshaped the territory of art, and the virus has created its realist mythology – about how disease and death can come suddenly and change the course of our lives. Born to Love, which presents works created during a time like no other before, aims to honour the art community and shed light on its diligence and tenacity in ensuring that art always survives.
