Fine arts

The Georgian Museum of Fine Arts is a modern art museum at თბილისი and it is probably the museum I like most in the capital city of Georgia. Privately owned and located on Rustaveli avenue it houses a massive collection of Georgian art – from artists you probably haven’t heard in western Europe or the rest of the world. That is mostly because these artists created their works mostly during Soviet times and the Iron Curtain prevented them getting known on the other side. A perfect chance to change this!

Manana Shevardnadze and George Jokhtaberidze are successfull entrepreneurs and started to collect art from the 1990s on. In 2018 the museum was opened directly opposite to the parliament of Georgia. It exhibits 3,500 artworks from 80 Georgian artists. A good deep-dive into Georgian art. The only confusing thing is the central staircase entirely made of glass; you shouldn’t be afraid of heights if you want to climb up. 😉
