In the center of the authors' research is a topic that is close not only to beginning artists, but also to everyone who is constantly searching for new things and dares to make fundamental changes in life, profession, and creativity.
Search is a fundamental element of artistic practice and a research method that determines the formation of author’s individuality. It is extremely important for a beginning artist to find some initial points in the coordinate system to continue to build his creative activity.
The artists tried to find this “base” using classical and modern mediums: sculpture, installation, site-specific projects, objects, and video art.
The exhibition is a part of the Parallel Program of Cosmoscow International Contemporary Art Fair which will be held from September 6 to 8 at Gostiny Dvor. The exhibition will open at Zaryadye on August 29 at 19:00. The curator of the exhibition is Mikhail Levin, an artist, teacher, and curator of the Contemporary Art program at the British Higher School of Art and Design.
