DESCRIPTION

Garage Museum of Contemporary Art hosts Moscow’s first art book fair, which will feature twenty leading Russian publishers including Elena Shubina Publisher (AST), Ad Marginem, the Alliance of Independent Publishers, Artguide Editions, Art-Volkhonka, Corpus, Eksmo, Klassika-XXI, Maier, Strelka Press, and V-A-C Press.

At the fair Garage will launch two of its most recent publications:

On October 8 at 16:00, there will be a presentation of Exhibit Russia: The New International Decade 1986–1996, a book—published in English and Russian editions—which reveals how the Russian art scene connected to the rest of the world during the turbulent decade following the adoption of the economic reforms known as perestroika. Focusing on those major group exhibitions and events which jettisoned Russian artists to international attention, or introduced Russian publics to Western art stars, the book provides readers with a unique perspective into the dawning of the global art world. The presentation will be in the form of a round table, featuring two people who were involved in the Russian art world at that time and whose accounts can be found in the book—American journalist and translator Jamey Gambrell and American curator, writer, and musician David A. Ross. They will be in conversation with Garage Chief Curator and editor of Exhibit Russia, Kate Fowle.

On October 9 at 16:00, authors Anna Bronovitskaya and Nikolai Malinin, photographer Yuri Palmin, and book designer Dmitry Mordvintsev will present the Russian-language guidebook Moscow: Soviet Modernist Architecture 1955–1991, which is published by Garage with the support of Aksenov Family Foundation. This is the first publication to look in detail at Moscow buildings of the period from Khrushchev to Gorbachev, from the thaw through perestroika.

These events are part of a program of book presentations and round table discussions, organized by participating publishers, which will take place in Garage Auditorium from 13:00 to 20:30 on both days of the fair. In addition, Dodo bookshop will run masterclasses in book illustration for children and adults.
