Progressive Art Agency, Progressive Art Center


An international artistic collective, working together to produce art that crosses all borders and disciplines. Working with artists, composers, musicians, directors, and cinematographers we aim create an artistic experience like no other. What is the force pulling progress and art? We will be that force.
Progressive Art, a collective who promote the work of musicians, composers, and artists from across the globe. The group aim to cross borders both artistically and politically. Always striving to create unity across the world’s divides. Promoting upcoming talent and celebrating some of the world’s unknown gems. A group that goes beyond promotion by renting art, selling scores, and producing masterclasses.
Progressive Art Center 
Based in United Kingdom and branches in Armenia and Kazakistan
Our debut project will be a cross platform performance hosted in Yerevan the Touing to United Kingdom, U.S.A and Europe. Composers from around the globe will be teamed up with like minded Armenian artists to produce a piece of work like no other. The collaborations will conclude with a performance of all of the works produced over the coming months. As an added incentive for audience members the canvas will be sold as well as signed copies of the composer’s manuscripts.
Thanks to the dynamics created by the internet age, our business model takes a less traditional format: 
  • We will have the elements of a traditional art agency where we promote our associated artists, but we will have extras too.
  • We will strive to generate more ways to commission artists through fascinating and unique  collaborations.​
  • We work in a more democratic layout so artists  can suggest ideas and concepts that we will  support an create.​
  • We have a panel of three widely experienced artists who will help mediate and coordinate our projects: Assel Abilseitova, Van Sarkissian and Be lunn.
