Garage Museum of Contemporary Art invites visitors to take part in YES—the largest collaborative outdoor project by Swiss-born artist Urs Fischer as part of his first solo exhibition Small Axe.
YES will take place from June 1 to August 21 on Garage Square and will involve people from all walks of life in order to create a landscape of clay sculptures that will metamorphose over the course of the show.
YES is an ongoing project initiated by Fischer in 2011 and most recently staged in 2015 at the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds, UK. For every staging, Fischer’s collaborators are given complete freedom to mold tons of clay into giant objects or tiny sculptures. For the Moscow iteration, the artist will work with volunteers from various art schools, including the British Higher School of Art and Design, Moscow Architectural Institute (MARCHI), Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts, and Surikov Art Institute, as well as visitors to Gorky Park.
