Garage Museum of Contemporary Art presents the special event A Day and Night at Garage, designed as part of Moscow’s annual Museum Night.
On Saturday, May 21, from 11:00 to 00:11, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and Garage Square next to it will become places to share ideas and find inspiration for visitors of all ages and interests.
Since opening in 2015 next to the Museum’s new building, Garage Square has been very popular with Gorky Park crowds. It has played host to a number of creative endeavors, including Louise Bourgeois’ 9-meter-high bronze spider statue, staged shows, and daily performances by young skaters and break dance groups. At the heart of A Day and Night at Garage is the idea of studying an urban public space.
The event program starts in the morning and concludes shortly after midnight. Visitors can visit any of the four exhibitions at Garage, participate in classes and drawing workshops, join an interactive discussion with Garage Teens Team, enjoy performances by musicians and DJs, pose questions to artist Rashid Johnson and Garage Chief Curator Kate Fowle, shop around at the famous Moscow fair Lambada Market, and taste fine food in open-air cafés.
I found I could say things with color and shapes that
I couldn't say any other way—things I had no words for.
