The Center for Contemporary Art in Tashkent is a new space to develop and support contemporary culture in Central Asia. The building, which will soon become the home for the center, was built in 1912. Before the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, the space served as a diesel power station that generated energy for the city’s tram line. This is where the electrification of the city of Tashkent began and where the renewal of Uzbekistan’s modern artistic environment will begin. Renovations to the building will start in late 2022.
