The conference "Decorative art and interior" has ended in the Azerbaijan Carpet Museum.

The event was attended by over forty specialists from 14 countries - Azerbaijan, Austria, Italy, Portugal, Germany, Lebanon, the Netherlands, Japan, the USA, India, Egypt, the Czech Republic, Georgia and Turkey, Trend Life reported.

The President of the Committee of Museums and Collections of Decorative Art and Design, Czech art historian Helena Kenigsmarkova noted that she first visited the capital of Azerbaijan and highly appreciated the conference.

"First of all, I liked the modern architecture in Baku. In fact, we spent the first day of the conference in museums and Icherisheher. All the impressions about your country are extremely positive. In Baku, the top priority for us was the topic of carpets and textiles. The conference was remembered by very interesting discussions and speeches. The Carpet Museum belongs to one of the most modern museums in the world. The quality of collections, expositions, and research are also important indicators of an ideal museum. The Carpet Museum does not stop at this, but moves forward, which is also very important. The carpet museum is a museum of my dreams. I wish all museums to go this way of development," she said.

Member of the board of the Committee of Houses of Museums and Historic Buildings and ICOM International Committee DEMHIST Yoshihiro Nakatani also stressed the importance of holding the conference and the beauty of Baku.

"I was interested in hearing numerous reports about interior solutions of house museums, techniques and the use of interior techniques. I was very impressed with the Azerbaijan Carpet Museum. We also have samples of textiles and, it happens, that we have difficulties with a beautiful demonstration of textile art. This exposition is simple and beautiful. I have very positive impressions about Baku and Azerbaijan. Baku has a European spirit like in Milan, Paris or Venice. At the same time, as a Japanese, I also catch Asia’s breath here. Your city combines both of these directions, causing a lot of sensations in me," he said.

The conference "Decorative Art and Interior" is organized by two international committees of the International Council of Museums (ICOM) - the Committee of Museums and Collections of Decorative Art and Design (ICDAD) and the Committee of Houses of Museums and Historic Buildings (DEMHIST) - with the support of the Culture Ministry, Azerbaijan National Committee (ICOM), Azerbaijan Carpet Museum and the National Museum of Art.
