Ingosstrakh has been supporting Garage and its projects for three years and the exhibition finissage is a traditional joint event between the partners. Visitors to Garage will get a unique chance to visit Summer projects for free on August 26.
This Summer Garage celebrated its 10th anniversary. Throughout this time Museum has changed the stereotypes and the traditional perception of a cultural institution. Every day Garage advocates that the contemporary museum is not just a space to show and preserve art but a place where every visitor can enjoy a vivid new experience.
Exhibitions of the Summer Season evoke an interest in the past, increase awareness of the present and offer the chance to think about the future. Visitors will get an opportunity to examine new ways of perceiving sound, dive into the digital atmosphere made by famous Japanese sound artist Ryoji Ikeda and see the evolution of Garage.
Infinite Ear is an exhibition of hearing situations that present a unique sonic space where the public is invited to hear, feel, understand, dream, and play sound in a way they have never encountered before. In this project, sound becomes an artistic value with limitless interpretations. The central elements of the show are a display of musical instruments by artist and composer Tarek Atoui, designed with the involvement of deaf and hard of hearing individuals from all over the world, and a project by Alison O’Daniel composed of sculptures and a video series.
To mark the 10th anniversary of Garage, the exhibition Dear Visitors… celebrates the key participant in all Garage programs: the museum visitor. It features new works created using audience data.
