Exhibition “Virus. What was it?”

On September 5, at 10:00, the Northern Underpass will be open. It will be a new space for events and art exhibitions. The Northern Underpass is a redefined technical underpass located at –1 level of the park under the Northern Landscapes and transformed into a full-fledged urban promenade. The brutal decoration of the urban space becomes a natural background for the art and offers guests a new route connecting the two main park entry points — from the Vasilevsky Descent and from Kitaygorodsky Passage. 

The first exhibition of the Northern Underpass is named “Virus. What was it?”. It shows the global experiences that have arisen in connection with the pandemic. There is no surprise that the demonstration of works by Russian and foreign authors resembles Instagram feed: created in different techniques and genres, the works are adapted to giant screenshots three by three meters, forming an artistic chronicle of images and meanings.
