“This is not the first exhibition held by the Kurultai of the Bashkirs and the Sesen creative association in the Dar Center. In January 2022, personal exhibitions of the Bashkir artist Zifa Tulumbayeva and craftswoman Gulnaz Kuramshina were organized here for the first time. Representatives of other national communities of Moscow picked up the idea of holding such exhibitions in the cultural center. During this period, the Kirghiz, Tatars, and other ethnic groups could present their culture. The administration of the cultural center decided to extend the duration of the exhibitions to three months,” the project organizers told Bashinform News Agency.
