On November 27, young people of Eurasia met online with representatives of the art industry from the countries of the continent. Guests of the “EYA Lecture Hall” educational project discussed topics that are relevant to each artist: how to organize an exhibition and create an author's art project, where to find financial support for the implementation of creative plans and ideas, how to establish interaction with artists from different countries.

A new issue of the “EYA Lecture Hall” came out under the talking name #НЕАНТИКВАРИАТ (not an antiques). Antiques are the name of things created fifty or more years ago. However, the time period may vary depending on the country. What happens to art objects that are younger than this age? What does the success of a contemporary artist depend on and will his works be in demand in 50 or 100 years?

Ksenia Konovalova, initiator of the issue, member of the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly, Head of the socially oriented NGO “Novikovs Artists Foundation”, noted: “First of all, the online meeting will help the young generation to form a perception of fine art of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries and teach them to understand modern trends independently. For contemporary artists and representatives of the art industry, # НЕАНТИКВАРИАТ is an opportunity to be engaged in creative direct interaction with their audience, change according the preferences of the public, and seek inspiration and new forms of work with young people”.
