“Fusion meets Function”

Deep in the heart of the financial district there is something abuzz and it isn’t the sound of another Wall St. titan collapsing, it’s the sound of Central Asia taking the U.S. by storm. Curator and organizer Emilia Salieva from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan was in New York working with the amazing people at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council as well as the terrific organization CEC Arts Link.


I had a chance to catch up with her at the LMCC and talk about her upcoming experimental “Fusion” festival that will be happening in Bishkek in 2010. Listen along as she relates stories of contemporary art in Central Asia, living under Soviet rule, tourism in a place most have never heard of, and tons more!
