Now in its eighth year, the project brings together a large number of guests from across the world in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan and a city where the past blends with the present.

The Opening Ceremony of Style.Uz Art Week 2013 and Opening Ceremony of the Seventh Tashkent International Biennale of Contemporary Art was held at the Grand Youth Art Palace Palace in Tashkent, Uzebkistan.
