Experts are worried about the fate of Art Georgia’s

In the midst of political turmoil in Georgia there is doubt about the controversial plan to revamp the nation’s most prestigious art museum. Staff members, both current and former, of the Shalva Amiranashvili museum of fine arts in Tbilisi assert that the planned relocation of the museum by Tea Tsulukiani, the culture minister may put at risk the museum’s 139,000-strong collection of art from the past and present. Architectural preservationists are worried about the possibility of a demolition of the museum’s 1838 structure that was designed in the classical style. It was once a school in which Joseph Stalin studied.

The chaos at the museum was in conjunction with the return to Georgia of the exiled president Mikheil Sakashvili ahead of municipal elections set for the 2nd of October. Saakashvili was arrested and ended up being in a hunger strike for more than one month, which culminated in his being transferred to a prison hospital last week. Many people gathered in Tbilisi to support his release and the treatment he received at a civilian clinic. After the elections in 2012, the government of Georgian Dream party won the mayoral elections in Tbilisi. There were numerous accusations of voter-buying. In 2012, the United National Movement party was defeated by Georgian Dream.

Tsulukiani is an ally of BidzinaIvanishvili, the founder of Georgian Dream (a Kremlin-connected billionaire who bought Picasso’s Dora Maar With Cat for $95.2m) and was Georgia’s premier minister from 2012-13. Following her time as justice minister between 2012 until 2020, she was named the minister of culture in March. Tsulukiani shortly after her appointment, declared that the restoration of Shalva Amiranashvili’s museum would be an “major project for the entire generation” which will require an “very substantial human and financial effort.” She said urgent action was needed due to Unesco experts had discovered that the museum’s treasured icons were badly damaged and needed to be removed.

Meanwhile, opposition politicians and opposition-affiliated media outlets have linked Tsulukiani’s overhaul of the museum building to the real-estate interests of Ivanishvili, the lead investor behind the $500m urban development project Panorama Tbilisi, which includes a newly constructed hotel next door to the museum.

Eka Kiknadze, the museum’s manager in the past. She revealed to The Art Newspaper that she was promoted to laboratory assistant when she inquired about Tsulukiani’s plans. In July, Nika Akhalbedashvili (the new director) was a former justice ministry official, advised employees that the collection had to be relocated within a couple of months. The idea was not considered by preservationists and museum staff who are concerned that the collection may never be returned to the museum. Kiknadze says that a long-term plan for shifting the museum’s collection into the climate-controlled temporary storage of adjacent buildings has been left out.

According to Kiknadze the collection contains “the most significant artifacts of Georgian culture, ranging from medieval icons to modern Georgian art,” including the Treasury being the most valuable medieval piece. The items were planned to be “relocated temporarily” as the building was being renovated as part of an elaborate plan of work by experts from Georgia’s National Museum. This umbrella organisation oversees 12 institutions which include the Shalva Amiranashvili Museum of Fine Arts. The building could have accommodated 3500 square feet. Kiknadze says that the 3500 sq. meters area is “equipped in accordance with all current requirements for the storage of museum collections in terms of humidity, climate and also with the latest microclimates as well as fire and physical security systems”.

Following the National Museum partnered with Germany’s Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation in 2010and 2012 as part of a cultural “twinningprogram that was funded by the EU. The abandoned plan remains on their site. It was a French architect, Jean-Francois Milou’s idea to design the Shalva Amiranashvili Museum’s renovation. Milou also suggested the concept of an “Avenue of the Arts” to connect the different structures that comprise the Georgian National Museum.

According to George Partskhaladze (a member of the Georgian National Museum’s research council) The current situation is “very alarming” and “very offensive” due to the fact that the years of hard work has gone unnoticed. He was involved in the restoration strategy and the twinning project.

The chief curator of Oriental collections Irina Koshoridze has told The Art Newspaper that “the transfer of collections hasn’t yet begun” at the Shalva Amiranashvili Museum, but she cautioned that “no temperatures or climate conditions are present” when objects are moved. Koshoridze also said that the collection’s 25 most significant and highly-respected artworks were transferred to the Simon Janashia Museum of Georgia close to the museum.

The fate of the Ancha Icon of the Saviour (a medieval artifact that dates back to the sixth or seventh century) was recently the subject of a debate that was raised by the supporters of the museum. Ilia II, the Georgian Orthodox Church’s Patriarch demanded that the premier Minister Irakli Garibashvili hand the icon over to the Anchiskhati Church to be used for worship services.

According to local news reports Roman Gotsiridze (an opposition member of the United National Movement) stated that the Museum of Fine Arts to BidzinaIvanishvili’s historical building is one of the treasures of the museum for the Patriarchate.

The Art Newspaper reached out to the Georgian Culture Ministry as well as the National Museum for comments. The deteriorating condition of Shalva Amiranashvili’s museum was blasted in a statement issued by the ministry published on Facebook in the summer of. The statement stated that the museum “doesn’t meet the basic requirements in seismic resistance”. The statement, however, did not say that the museum could be destroyed and said that “the ministry is planning” to protect the museum’s distinctive exhibits. Tsulukiani asserts that the museum was closed under the previous management of the museum.
