The New Illuminations:

A three week Residency with

Women Artists of Armenia

 Illuminating Women’s Experience through Contemporary Manuscripts

October 2017

about her experience in New Illuminations 2016, Armine writes:

As an artist I understood that I can work on the design of books, booklets, journals. It was a hint to expand the horizons of creating art, and as a woman living in Armenia I understood that women like me just raise children… It was very important to communicate with women and girls of different ages. The project brought an essential change to my life. It was the second time I was taking part in an exhibition. It was a new experience.”
