DESCRIPTION

The fourth event of the series concentrates on the main space of the artist. The viewers will see that an artist is not at all unapproachable. They live among us, eat the same food as us, and like to sleep on the cool side of the pillow, just as we do.

The team—Nastya, Dima, Diana, and Dina—will tell the stories of the artists through their surroundings, rather than artworks, using the example of the Moscow Conceptualists' studios of the 1980s.

While developing this project, we received help from many acclaimed Moscow artists, including Yuri Albert, Igor Makarevich, Elena Elagina and Vasily Chuikov, who shared their firsthand stories about that period with us. We also had access to a priceless source of photographs and artists' interviews, collected by George Kiesewalter and Vadim Zakharov in the 1980s. You will be able to “pay a visit” to a friend of yours, and we are going to join you.

ABOUT THE GARAGE TEENS TEAM

Garage Teens Team (2013–present) is a yearly Garage initiative for 13- to 19-year-old high school and first-year university students, launched in 2013 and aimed at helping Garage to engage diverse publics into creative processes and the life of a contemporary museum.

From September through May a group of young people study contemporary art theory and practice, and museum work formats, completing the program by preparing their own thematic projects.
