Garage Triennial of Russian Contemporary Art

For the inaugural Garage Triennial of Russian Contemporary Art, over 60 artists living in more than 40 cities—from the Baltic Sea to the Pacific Ocean—reveal the scope of art practice in the country today.

Toward the Source

The exhibition Toward the Source, combines the works of Vyacheslav Kuritsyn, Vladimir Logutov, Andrei Monastyrsky, Kirill Savchenkov, and Olga Chernysheva. This is the first initiative at Garage Museum of Contemporary Art to invite artists to conduct research in Garage Archive Collection and make a new work—or a new interpretation of the archive materials—in response to their discoveries.

Irina Korina. The Tail Wags the Comet

Irina Korina has produced a three-story architectural intervention for Garage Atrium space that physically and ideologically transports audiences into new surrounds.

Ugo Rondinone. your age and my age and the age of the rainbow

The artist’s first project in Russia consists of two interconnected pieces: an installation in front of the Museum, and an object on its rooftop. In Garage Square, visitors find a one-hundred-meter-long fence supporting thousands of images of rainbows painted on wood panels by kids with various disabilities from all over the country. Garage Rooftop also hosts a ten-meter-long rainbow that spells out OUR MAGIC HOUR. This message celebrates the inauguration of the first Triennial of Russian Contemporary Art, which is taking place simultaneously inside the Museum. Having emerged in Rondinone's work in 1997, first as a sculpture for a public space, the rainbow has since become one of his most recognizable images, a convergence of visual and poetic energies—according to the artist, each rainbow represents a complete work of poetry.
