Celebrating the closing day of the major exhibition The Coming World: Ecology as the New Politics 2030–2100, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and Ingosstrakh invite guests to a free visit to the show.
Spanning the entire museum space, the exhibition offers an expanded interpretation of ecology and covers the issues of environmental pollution, resource depletion, and the impact of technology on modern humanity. The Coming World is an investigation into evolution processes and a future, where the ecological agenda will become one of the main political questions.
The artistic duo Sun Yuan & Pengyu will present a one-off live event at the closing day of the exhibition. The piece– а provocative yet laconic performance that involves a sword that ends with a flag and a professional sword swallower–is intended to underline the often life threatening quality of our political choices, the heavy responsibility and dangers our chosen ideologies come with.
The finissage will also mark the last day of the installation Graft by the Puerto-Rico-based artist duo Allora & Calzadilla (Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla) made of thousands of artificial blossoms of the Roble Amarillo (Tabebuia chrysantha) tree scattered across Garage Square in front of the Museum.
The partnership between Garage and Ingosstrakh is based on a common mission—to imbue life with a new quality and strong impressions.The priorities of the Museum’s collaboration with Ingosstrakh include the support of Russian contemporary art and the providing of access to knowledge and new experiences.
