LECTURE CYCLE: 1990s YEAR BY YEAR
November 5, 7:30 pm
Curator and art historian, as well as Moscow Art Magazine's founder and editor-in-chief, Viktor Misiano was one of the key figures on the Moscow artistic scene in the 1990s. His major curating achievements include such discursive projects as Visual Anthropology Workshop, Hamburg Project, and INTERPOL, all attempting to defy traditional museum exhibition practices. In parallel with curating art projects, Misiano has been working on the establishment of the first Russian magazine to cover contemporary art exclusively. During the talk, he discusses his past and current projects in detail.
Admission is free.
