These Heroes Boost Moscow's Art Scene into the World
Better Note Down Their Names ASAP...
People 04 Oct 2018

Moscow is slowly gaining its recognition within the art community, bringing superstar’ shows to the Garage Museum (remember Murakami last autumn?) run by the art-collector and philanthropist Dasha Zhukova, the COSMOSCOW Art Fair and soon by the V-A-C Foundation, opening in Autumn 2019 in a former GES-2, completely redesigned by Renzo Piano.
Apart from those institutions, the Russian capital has its very own heroes who are actively working towards changing the art community and bringing it to global awareness. Meet the 10 brightest and under-30 (ok, or slightly above) art professionals from Moscow and make sure to follow them straight away – you couldn’t have any better guides to the scene.

MMOMA Education Center has recently saw the opening of the cozy MMOMA Café perfectly suitable for a friendly conversation or a working meeting.
Russian Artists we should have on our watch list are…
I believe that today there are many interesting young artists in Russia. Among them are Taus Makhacheva and Evgeny Antufiev, who are already well known to the foreign audience. Besides, among the artists, with whom I have gladly collaborated, it is worth mentioning Sveta Shuvaeva, Mikhail Tolmachev, Ilya Fedotov-Fedorov, and Ivan Gorshkov.

A show in Moscow to visit now…

Sveta Shuvaeva’s Lakeview Special Offer at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (9, Tverskoy Boulevard, through October 5, 2018); and Ilya Fedotov-Fedorov’s Collection of Pink Book №2 at the Timiryazev State Biological Museum (through December 2, 2018).

The Russian art scene is, of course, exciting because it still has everything ahead of it.
