Sculptures, photography, paintings, objects made from ceramics, glass, fabrics, as well as other materials await you at the events.

16.05 | 7 pm Lecture by Vladislav Efimov and Maria Bavykina Constructing an Artistic Image. The lecture is about the opportunities to use photography in contemporary art in an experimental and conceptual way.

17.05 | 7 pm Lecture by Anna Prikhodko The Expanded Field: Contemporary Art Inside and Outside the White Cube.

Building on the concept of “the expanded field”, developed by Rosalind Krauss, the lecturer is going to explore works by contemporary artists which exist on the border between “the outside” and the space of “the white cube”. She will also discuss conceptual practices, radically breaking with gallery space, yet returning to it in the form of documentation.
