September 25 — October 18, 2014
Thursday 19:30, Saturday 17:00

Venue: Garage Education Center

Films will be shown on English with Russian subtitles. 

Art in the Twenty-first Century is a popular PBS documentary series featuring the top hundred most influential contemporary artists. Among these are such important figures as Marina Abramovic, Matthew Barney, Louise Bourgeois, Ai Weiwei, William Kentridge, Barbara Kruger, Jeff Koons, Bruce Nauman, Richard Serra, and Cindy Sherman.

Each episode deals with a specific theme, such as “Place,” “Consumption,” “History,” etc., and features interviews with three of four contemporary artists with differing backgrounds and approaches to art whose work is relevant to these themes.

Free entry

The program includes: screenings, Open Workshops, and Teens Cinema Club sessions. Accompanying each screening is a short lecture by a member of the Education Department. 

Teens Cinema Club
Saturdays, October 4, 11, and 18
17:00 to 19:00

Garage Museum of Contemporary Art’s Teens Cinema Club is a unique opportunity for students and young people to discuss interesting or puzzling film moments, share their impressions, explore contemporary art, or simply debate with peers. Located at Garage Museum, the Club takes place each Saturday immediately following the film screening.
The topics of the meetings will correspond to the issues raised in each episode of Art in the 21st Century Place, Compassion, Fantasy etc – as reflected in the practices of famous artists such as Marina Abramovic, William Kentridge, and Jeff Koons, as well as those whose names are less well known.  
The Cinema Club is moderated by members of Garage Teens Team. Over the past academic year, the young members of the Teens Team have engaged with contemporary art by trying their hands as curators, art managers, and even tour guides. Their first individual project, titled The Moscow Art Map: Our Scale was exhibited at Garage from May 22 to July 6.

Open Workshops
Saturdays, September 27 to October 18, 14:00 to 18:00.
For children aged five+ and creative adults of all ages

While the parents are busy watching Art in the 21st Century at Garage Screen, the younger ones are invited to our Open Workshops to find out more about the films’ characters, exploring the many forms that art takes today. Drawing inspiration from the colorful, “cartoony” sculptures of Jeff Koons, the animated shorts of William Kentridge, or the spatial installations of Richard Serra, participants will ultimately create works of their own.
