The works will be produced in Vladikavkaz, exhibited in the spaces of the Fine Art Museum of Vladikavkaz and donated to the Museum.

A forum with the participation of art critics, curators and culture experts from the South and North Caucasus region will be held 14th of August.

Alanica is organized by the Ministry of Culture and Mass Communications of the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania and the National Centre for Contemporary Art and supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation.
