Just Art is a series of discussions with artists moderated by renowned art critic and historian Andrey Kovalev.

Using artistic, political, scientific, and museological histories to uncover and propose potential futures, Zhilyaev explores a productive space between fiction and non-fiction. Within his recent projects, the artist casts a revisionist lens on the heritage of soviet museology.

Arseny Zhilyaev is an artist who lives and works in Moscow and Voronezh. Zhilyaev graduated from Voronezh State University, Philosophical Faculty (2006); Moscow Institute of Contemporary Art (2008); and MA International Programs, Valand School of Fine Arts, Goteborg, Sweden (2010). Recent accolades include the Innovation 2010 Russian state award in the sphere of contemporary art, the Soratnik [Companion-in- Arms] 2010 and 2012 awards, and a nomination for the Visible Award in 2013. Since 2011, Zhilyaev has also been a member of the editorial board of the Moscow art magazine, Khudozhestvennyi Zhurnal. He is a contributor of e-flux Journal and others.
