Garage Museum of Contemporary Art will be at the Moscow International Travel & Tourism Exhibition (MITT)

This year, from March 14–16 visitors to Russia’s largest travel and tourism exhibition will have the opportunity to see what’s on at Garage at the Expocentre complex.

Garage Museum of Contemporary Art will present the whole range of its activities as well as offer free consultations on the organization of museum leisure, group, and individual tours, as well as special events for all categories of visitors.

Garage is an essential part of the cultural journey for local and international audiences. For this reason, the Museum will be a participating in MITT for the second time. MITT is one of the top five travel exhibitions in the world and is highly valued by the international tourism community. MITT is the key meeting place for the industry, and provides an opportunity to catch up with colleagues and clients. It also enables participants to increase awareness of their destination, present new programs, and gain a real feel for the Russian travel market.

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, there’s a new kind of revolution taking place at Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in 2017. Artists are taking center stage—more than 100 of them—not only through presenting works that engage audiences in the social, cultural, and political questions that are pertinent to our time, but through curating shows, developing new research into little known phenomena arising in Russia, writing books, and making new works specifically for the Museum site.

Throughout the year, the building will be transformed in different ways, creating diverse environments through which to experience and get involved with art. In spring, the Museum will offer a full immersion into what artists are producing across the country now—and in the past—with the very first Triennial of Russian Contemporary Art, as well as an exhibition that focuses on Garage Archive, and a new Atrium Commission by Irina Korina. In the summer, four radically different exhibitions offer a global perspective on culture, including music and architecture, featuring projects developed by David Adjaye, Sammy Baloji, Stephen Coates and Paul Heartfield, and Raymond Pettibon. Then in the fall, the first retrospective of Takashi Murakami in Russia will dramatically change the way we navigate the Museum, offering a completely new perspective on this prolific artist’s output, as well as on the Soviet Modernist building that Garage now calls home. Large-scale commissions on Garage Square by Takashi Murakami, and Ugo Rondinone will literally absorb visitors in art and ideas throughout the year, providing new spaces for participation.
