The major goal of the Critical Review is the stimulation of critical writing in Armenia on local and international current processes in contemporary art and culture. The deficit of the critical reflection of the processes and trends that are taking place in Armenian contemporary art situation since long time has been one of the major problems of the local contemporary art scene.
