"Nomad Spirit" international art exhibition is taking place at Contemporary Art Center of Mongolia (Central Museum of Mongolian Dinosaurs, entrance from east side of the museum) from 6 to 25 March, 2017.

The exhibition is organized by Mongolian Contemporary Art Support Association MCASA and 976 Art Gallery with the support from Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation SDC.

Nomad Spirit aims to raise public awareness on potential threats to important environmental and cultural resources in rural areas of Mongolia, caused by mining and other activities.

In September 2016, 7 artists from Mongolia, Brazil and Switzerland travelled 1500 km exploring mostly gold mining sites and ecologically damaged areas in Uvurkhangai, Tuv, Arkhangai and Bulgan provinces. Artists documented their observations and organized public discussions and workshops in various places.

Artists J.Bolortuvshin, G.Munkhbolor, E.Enkhzaya, S.Ganzug, Ts.Davaajargal (Mongolia), Mauricio Dias (Brazil) and Walter Riedweg (Switzerland) are now presenting their artworks, created basing on their documentations.

Exhibition will display video works, sculpture and sound installations of participating artist.
