In 2015, Documentary Film Center (DFC) and Garage Museum of Contemporary Art continue their collaboration on the Exhibition on Screen project.

The viewer gets a chance to see how an exhibition is installed, listen to museum specialists and witness the transformation of a curator’s idea into an exhibition project.

 The third film in the program, Phil Grabsky’s Matisse, will be screened on March, 7 at 19:00.

Along with a virtual tour of the exhibition galleries, the film features interviews with its curators, the heads of Tate Modern and the New York MoMA, and two performances inspired by the cut-outs.
