Public session of the project Museum Delivery by Gorod Ustinov micro art

23 April 2019
19:30–21:00

DESCRIPTION

Micro art group Gorod Ustinov, laureates of Garage’s grant program in support of Russian contemporary art, will present Museum Delivery—a portable exhibition/studio where intangible museums are created. The first Russian public session of the project will be delivered by the artists at Garage.

“Museum is something that hasn’t happened yet”—deriving from this credo, members of the Gorod Ustinov art group form a construction kit composed of artworks, materials, and ideas, in order to create their own museums anywhere, and at any time. Using the medium of a portable exhibition/studio, Gorod Ustinov emphasizes its creative method by representing other artists’ works.

Together with the members of the Museum Delivery studio, Gorod Ustinov builds a structure composed of multiple micro installations each time. Depending on place, time, and participants, every session leads to the formation of a unique museum situation.

During the session, the participants will be offered the chance to create their own installation using objects and practices suggested by Gorod Ustinov micro art group, as well as objects by other artists, including Dmitry ::vtol:: Morozov, Ekaterina Muromtseva, Mayana Nasybullova, Anna and Vitaly Cherepanov, and Ustina Yakovleva.
