Curator-Led Tours for GARAGE Premium Cardholders and Art Lovers’ Circle MembersCurator-Led Tours for GARAGE Premium Cardholders and Art Lovers’ Circle Members


Garage Museum of Contemporary Art is pleased to invite GARAGE Premium cardholders and Art Lovers’ Circle members to curator-led tours of summer season exhibitions.

Garage members of Premium and higher levels get an opportunity to see what happens behind the scenes of the art world. Each season, they are invited to learn about our projects directly from those who create them—Garage curators.

This summer, tours are run by three Garage curators: Ekaterina Inozemtseva, Valentin Diaconov and Sasha Obukhova. Visitors will see the solo exhibitions of American punk artist Raymond Pettibon The Cloud of Misreading; the show David Adjaye: Form, Heft, Material, featuring the architect’s projects for Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO and the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture; Congo Art Works: Popular Painting, which explores Congolese art of the past fifty years; and Kholin and Sapgir: Manuscripts—a project devoted to two key Soviet nonconformist poets Igor Kholin and Genrikh Sapgir and based on Garage Archive, which boasts the world’s biggest collection of documents on the history of Russian contemporary art.
