Co-thinker’s Tour: Evgeny Lyapin

Public Program for Co-thinkers
28 July – 18 August 2016
Thursday, July 28, August 4, August 18, 19:00


The public program for Co-thinkers includes tours with each of the four collaborators behind the exhibition. Each co-thinker has chosen the format of their tour: Evgeny Lyapin will speak about his perception of the exhibition space, the figure of a man walking out of the wall, a flower made of road signs and socialist realism in Pop Art colours. 

During this tour, viewers are invited to directly interact with works in the exhibition and consider what feelings each particular work and the exhibition as a whole inspire. 

Evgeny Lyapin: 

—Why are you coming to Co-thinkers? What do you expect to find here? Art covered in museum dust? Unquestionable art beyond critique? You will see none of that. Instead, you will be asked many questions about the visible and the invisible, about time, art, humanity, and about yourself. Who will be asking you? Cecily Brown, Antony Gormley, Maurizio Cattelan, John Miller and Cindy Sherman—artists who live the experiences of their time, anticipate new movements and invite endless interpretations and reflections. Forget everything you know, open your eyes wide, be open to new modes of perception and come on this tour.  



Evgeny Lyapin (b. 1995, Moscow) and was quick to speak (and sing!). At age 5 he felt a strong connection to God, then spent his childhood participating in competitions and festivals and missed a lot of school classes. He featured in renowned documentalist Tofik Shakverdiyev's film About Love. He traveled across half of Russia with the UNESCO World Children’s Choir, and also won the Moscow children’s wheelchair dancing championship. Other accomplishments include: presenting a report on inclusive education to Russia’s Federation Council; watching Yuri Butusov’s almost five-hour-long production of The Seagull eight times; and working as a presenter on the Inva Media TV channel. Lyapin is also a winner of the Russian Presidential Prize for Talented Youth and the TV project President 2042 on the Dozhd news channel. Argued on sex with the head of the State Committee on Family, Women and Children Elena Mizulina, bought in Crimea a T-shirt with Putin’s portrait, and has entered this year the actors’ school at MKHAT Theater and adores his girlfriend Liza Larina.
